Eliane Gomes is an experienced book restorer and the owner of the Nautilus Boekbinderij in Haarlem, the Netherlands. You may find her texts on our website, and her input to the series of posts about bookish Game of Thrones is invaluable.
Went to Haarlem today for the annual book market - Boeken in de Bavo. The market itself is quite nice, 75 sellers (or something like that), quite a diverse choice of books. But what's makes this fair really special is the astonishing location!
Every once in a while the Museum Meermanno in the Hague (The Netherlands) brings a new temporary exhibition. This time they show the works of Quentin Blake, an artist, who had illustrated multiple books, including stories by the world-famous author Roald Dahl.
