This blog is no longer updated but was written by Fran Taylor, Marketing Manager at the British Library.
The Library has a huge range of collections to surprise and inspire you, from Japanese woodcuts to comics and wildlife sounds. We’ll tell you the stories behind some of these items and the creative people who use them - whether it’s to write a novel, create a fashion show, documentary film or computer game.
Watch this animation on how you can explore our collections.
