A fascinating journey through literature from the first hand-made books to Shakespeare, the Bronte sisters and the Brothers Grimm - and including cookery, science and music. A handmade gospel hidden in a saint's coffin; a HUGE atlas that takes six people to lift it; a tiny prayer book carried by a queen to her execution; the original handwritten manuscript of Alice in Wonderland; books so rare and valuable they are kept in a bomb-proof store-room. The British Library is an amazing place! From man-eating monsters and brave knights to wicked witches, lost children, haunted moors, magical creatures and flying machines award-winning duo Mick and Brita bring to life the amazing and extraordinary history of the book through the treasures of the largest library in the world -- the British Library. Let's go inside.
