A little bit of butter

I had a meeting with E (she just won this btw!) at the V&A on Friday and used it as an excuse to mooch about the gallery for a few hours. I saw my fave embroidered map, some beautiful tiles, this book exhibition and of course, had to check out the Supremes’ dresses at the same time! There were also some books published by Coracle on display – and this butter book leapt into my hands… A joint project between Coracle and the Cork Butter Museum (of course!) the book is made up of prints made with the original butter-wrapper printing blocks and collection of folklore, song lyrics, butter inspection notes and quotes. This appealed to the Goldtop side of me, and somehow reminded me of my favourite books – Sendak’s collection The Nutshell Library
