Maria chose the theme Books/Reading/Authors for today's Postcards for the Weekend. I receive often postcards related to literature. These are the latest I have got, all sent by Laura (the UK):
Have you recognized Kazuo Ishiguro? He has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature this year. The painter of this portrait from the National Portrait Gallery was Peter Edwards, in 1995.
Ruben Hall began trading books in Chapel Place in 1898. In 1919 he was joined by an apprentice, Harry Pratley (president of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association 1959-60), who created one of the finest bookshops in the South Est. Today the shop is run by another past-president, Adrian Harrington.
Dickens House is a museum that displays many artefacts relating to Charles Dickens and his life in Broadstairs (the UK).
