We posted back in January about a creative writing workshop held in Special Collections, led by writer Louise Welsh. We’re pleased to say that an anthology of work by staff and students of the University of Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Art has now been published. It’s called Tip Tap Flat and there are copies on the Library shelves. At least one of the pieces was begun in the workshop and was inspired by a public notice issued in July 1828 about dogs with hydrophobia (a symptom of rabies).
This is one of many items of ephemera we hold, mainly from the collection of John Smith (1784-1849), a Glasgow bookseller and town councillor.
