‘The Jewel Without a Crown’, or, Down with Super-Libraries!

It’s been a while. I’m sorry. Attic Fantasist is glad to be back.

A friend, The Dead Letter Office, has just published a piece on Liverpool Central Library specifically and Super Libraries generally called ‘The Jewel Without a Crown’, namely a dazzling Super Library downtown that lacks smaller jewels to make a library crown uptown in subtopia and beyond. We’re talking Private Finance Initiative, swingeing savage barbaric cuts, Costa Coffee, empty shelves, denuded public lives.

Fans of or those interested in an earlier post on libraries here will be similarly interested if not fans again.

Hope to see you all soon. Take care.
