A Wedding Amongst The Books

By | Bookshops, Inspired by Literature | No Comments
The perfect wedding for many reading addicts would be held in a library or bookstore. To be surrounded by both the people and the objects you love the most sounds heavenly! There would be no need for flowers- who would want floral scents to mask the musty-vanilla of our papery companions? Just push the tables aside and there would be plenty of room for dancing and celebrating.

That is exactly what one couple did in New York City.

On the first of December 2017, among the rare books section of The Strand bookstore, two people who were very much in love made their vows in front of family and friends. Adam J. Kurtz and Mitchell Kuga eschewed traditional ceremonial practices for a service that included the guests through the ritual, the entertainment was brought to them by a drag queen singer, and a low-key dance space provided for those who wanted to shake their stuff in honour of the sweet couple.

Thanks to The Daily 360, and with help via technology from Samsung, their wedding video is an interactive affair where we are able to scan around the room via our computer.

Watch the video below for an insight into the wonderful day and share the love!

Beatrix Potter Coins Are Rare and Collectable

By | Children's Literature, Inspired by Literature | No Comments
In 2016 the Royal Mint introduced the new Beatrix Potter 50 pence coins with three different sets of five: Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, Squirrel Nutkin and a special 150th anniversary coin.

The coins are currently ranking highly in the scarcity list based on the fact that not many people own them and they are in very high demand.

The coins are going for around £4 on eBay, and may only increase in value since they are not being produced any more. The Royal Mint is set to introduce new and exciting sets of coins, not for circulation, featuring COLOUR pictures of the beloved characters.
