Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming Up Post

One of Phil Bradley’s terrific set of save the library posters based on original posters from WW2. To see the complete set click on the image


Jackie finds much to admire in Gaile Parkin’s novel, Baking Cakes in Kilgali.


Our intrepid guest reviewer, Jamie, discovers a magical novel that combines two real life Victorian moments and makes them into much more than a sum of their parts.


Anne gets to grips with the concept of lost children in Beth Gutcheon’s Still Missing.


Kirsty casts a critical eye over Terry Eagleton’s classic, Literary Theory: An Introduction.


Eve is delighted to have discovered an utterly hilarious tale for tween boys that parents will rush out to buy (so they can read it themselves!)


Vulpes Libris supports the Save the Libraries campaign. Phil Bradley has created a set of posters which can be used in support of the campaign under the Creative Commons License.

    Thanks for these wonderful posters. As a total library addict, I plan to pass this on myself!
