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 on Vulpes Libris

foxmittensMost of the Bookfoxes have succumbed to Post-Wimbledon exhaustion, but three of our hardiest souls will be manning the Vulpes Libris court this week with reviews of art books, a biography and JD Simon’s latest novel.

Monday: RosyB considers one of the great pleasures of the physical book when it comes to her love of art books.

Wednesday: Kate gobbles up a new biography of Elizabeth von Arnim.

Friday: Hilary considers JD Simons’ An Exquisite Sense of What Is Beautiful.

    I know! Look at those little tails! I also like the way that one of them looks a bit unhinged.
