=============

The photographs of the books above owned by Anja Thomson are
dedicated to the memory of her mother, a classical actress who previously owned the books. Aged almost 92, she passed away on the same day I was taking and editing these photographs. 

Anja told me, “The significance of this is that they weren’t just nice books, but they meant the world to her as a stage actress.” 

Rest in peace. X
