[BKARTS] FW: Paris



> When I lived in Lille in the north of France I went to the library and asked if 
> they had any manuscripts. I was treated to an amazing array of centuries of 
> manuscripts. You might find that any library you go into will have fabulous 
> bindings to peruse. It never hurts to ask.
> 
> By the way, in 2004 while revisiting Lille, the art museum had a truly wonderful 
> show of fine bindings by French and Belgian artists. As a calligrapher I would 
> have preferred that the books were open, but they were extraordinary. That year 
> Lille was a European cultural city. There were art exhibits all over the city. 
> The show at the art museum received quite a bit of publicity. I was impressed 
> that the show was in the art museum. Often our venues are libraries.
