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


Spring has sprung (at least, it has here in Germany).  The grass is riz (ditto).  I wonder where the Foxes is?

Oh look, there they are.

On Monday, Kate thinks cautiously about Alan Garner’s Strandloper and Bonelands. We’re not in Brisingamen any more.

On Tuesday, Simon gets to know Patricia Brent, Spinster, and is entirely enchanted.

On Wednesday, Kirsty D sympathises with The Worst Princess.

And on Friday, Hilary compares her present-day mooching around London with Paul Cohen-Portheim’s pre-war portrayal of the city in his Spirit of London.
