Picture: National Library of Scotland

The BBC came to look in on me doing some research in the National Library of Scotland on Friday. I treated them to a new jumper.

By the way - art history research fact: did you know that Edinburgh is, in terms of libraries, probably the best city in the world for an art historian? Not only do we have the excellent National Library (a UK legal deposit library, so it has a copy of everything ever published here) but we also have an amazing fine art room in the City public library, the best I've ever come across; I can borrow even the most obscure art historical titles. And for anything that's fallen through the cracks, there's the library at the Scottish National Gallery.
