The Secret History of Second-Hand Books: An exhibition by freelance writer Wayne Gooderham

Friday 30th November 2012 9:30am - Thursday 13th December 2012 9pm 107 Charing Cross Road Exhibition, Free Event

After years of buying second-hand books, writer Wayne Gooderham began to notice he was accidentally accumulating an intriguing sub-collection: second-hand books inscribed with personal messages. Ranging from the awkward scratchings of adolescent infatuation to the resentful recriminations of love affairs gone awry, each and every scribble and scrawl told a different story. Now Wayne has selected the very best examples from his collection and will be displaying these in a special exhibition in the Café at Foyles - a must for bibliophiles, book lovers and anyone who appreciates the magic of the physical book.

You can see a selection of some of Wayne's favourite on our blog. The full range of dedications can be found on Wayne's regularly updated blog.

Venue:
The Café at Foyles, First Floor, Charing Cross Road

*Please note that due to the arrangement of the Café, viewing of the artwork may be restricted.
