On Wednesday I went to see my friend Henrietta in Cambridge. We popped into the Fitzwilliam museum to have a look at the Quentin Blake exhibition which is on at the moment. It was smaller than I thought it was going to be but it was nice to see some of his original artworks. There were also some of his paints and artist tools on display:
After we had lunch we paid a visit to the Haunted Bookshop. I love this place. If you havn't been there before it's a tiny little shop down an alley way absolutely stuffed with vintage children's books. We went in and had a browse and I discovered the most beautiful perfect book that I fell in love with. It was just a small paperback book tied with string about the adventures of a little wooden peg/dutch doll called Catharine Susan. Sadly though it was way too expensive for me to buy. I'm talking fifty quid here. BUT I did manage to get some shots of the pictures on my phone whilst I was in there: (actually the last picture is courtesy of Google)
What do you think? Had you heard of the Catharine Susan books before? They seem to be very rare. I so hope I get to own a copy of this one some day!
