Exploring the British Library's Macmillan archive with Chris Riddell

I have three things to say about being given the opportunity to delve into five of the British Library’s most amazing bookish treasures (from the original woodcuts from Alice in Wonderland to an early edition of Millicent Garrett Fawcett’s The Education of Women for the Middle and Upper Classes) as part of Pan Macmillan’s 175th birthday celebrations, on camera, with the legendary writer/illustrator/children’s laureate/hero that is Chris Riddell.

One: Books, although.

Two: Chris Riddell is not just a fountain of talent, modesty, humour, generosity and knowledge - he has a GOLD BLUE PETER BADGE.

Three: Could I not at least have brushed my hair?
