This image is from the small exhibition of prints from the Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston picture book A Child Of Books. Yes, it is basically the book pages on the wall, but the British Library is a majestic place to visit with a three year old and there is something special about treating these pages like the works of art that they are.
I would have studied them for many minutes more (if I wasn't with a three year old). The images are simple yet so rich. I'd wallpaper my house with these pages if I could.
Whatever your age, if you like words, books, pictures, typography, design or stories, then seek out this exhibition or book.
