You could be forgiven for thinking that a book's knowledge is imparted on the fronts and backs of its pages. Veronica Bailey proves otherwise with her series of prints bookedges, on show at the Blue Gallery in London EC1 until 1 November.

These unconventional perspectives turn out to be surprisingly eloquent and beautiful. And they aren't just any old books-they all belonged to Modernist architect Erno Goldfinger and his artist wife Ursula Blackwell. The titles of their combined library reveal the couple's professional tastes, private passions and something of Goldfinger
and Blackwell's relationship.
