Visited the Queer Between the Covers exhibition at the Senate House Library, a celebration of LGBT UK publishing history, with @galeydownthepath and @scifinch tonight, and saw, among other things, an autographed copy of Oscar Wilde’s Salome (!!), a print of a literary magazine his lover Lord Alfred Douglas edited, a handwritten poem by W. H. Auden, a number of old gay pulp covers, and material relating to when the bookshop Gay’s the Word’s books were seized by the government for being ‘indecent’, etc.
Paternoster Square was particularly pretty, albeit freezing, this evening, so I took a photo. Then started playing around with filters. This one is a lot more fun and melodramatic but I posted the other version too to convey something closer to how it actually looked. (Thanks to @thehistoryb0yphotography for the suggestion. 😘)
One last one from #lumierelondon I forgot to post. This is called ‘Bottle Festoon’. From the brochure: ‘chandeliers made from used plastic bottles, with the participation of community groups and education teams at Veolia.’ I actually think they look better in daylight. #latergram
