Every Wednesday these days I post a video on LinkedIn and elsewhere.

On Weds 19 June this exhibition, #MakingYourMark, was the theme.

“plenty here that’s either beautiful, fascinating or very funny”
Time Out‘s review on the British Library’s website

Very funny? Sounds intriguing…

Will we abandon pens and keyboards for voice and video messaging, or continue to carry the traditions of ancient times with us?

(A question posed in the blurb for the exhibition, which includes more than 100 artefacts from Burma to Bengal spanning 5,000 years.)

Perhaps taking your thoughts and plans for a walk with pen and paper gets your vote too: a scribble here, a doodle there, list upon list.

Life without a pen and notebook always to hand… I can never imagine that myself, but time will tell.


While we’re here: are you a fan of postcards?
