Book Fair

Earl's CourtWith Munson now bedded down at Airpets, I went to Kensington to check out a book fair specialising in children’s titles and modern firsts. There was an interesting selection but nothing that cried out “buy me!”. My eye was drawn to a couple of Moomin cartoon strips by Lars Jansson and a couple of shelves of titles by the English nature writer Denys “BB” Watkins-Pitchford.

Spring snows continued to arrive through the day, and I found myself waiting on a friend at Earl’s Court Station, watching the snow descend like white soot over the deck-chairs and fake grass outside the Ideal home show across the road.
