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 This Week

As February winds down, the Foxes find themselves dealing with disappointments.Is it cabin fever, broken New Year’s resolutions or substandard Valentine’s gifts causing such irritation amongst us? Whatever it is, we’ve expressed it in two different ways this week, but things take a glorious upswing by the weekend.And we also have a long awaited review of a book about horses. Or lesbians. Or something.

Monday-Jackie asks a group of her friends about disappointing books, in Books Which Aren’t All That.

Wednesday-Moira finally finds out whether the Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories is really about Lesbian Horses.

Thursday-Anne experiences a beautiful beginning but a fading finish in Simon Van Booy’s Everything Beautiful Began After

Friday-Hilary explores the artistry hidden in the stacks of the British Library, revealed in Royal Manuscripts: the Genius of Illumination.

“Fox in Winter” is a painting by Vermont artist Sabra Field, part of her ‘Cosmic Geometry’ series. More of her art can be seen at the vpr site .
