Friendship Before FacebookFind out how friends were selected, collected and put on display before the digital era in the free Friendship Before Facebook display within the British Library's permanent exhibition, The Sir John Ritblat Gallery: Treasures of the British Library. It just goes to show, things weren't so different 500 years ago. Before pocket-sized phones people living between the 16th and 19th centuries had miniature paintings and portable friendship albums and in place of 'influencers' there were celebrity autographs.

 

About British Library

With over 150 million items, a copy of every publication produced in the UK and Ireland, artwork by artists such as Antony Gormley and Eduardo Paolozzi, and a host of historically momentous works - including the Magna Carta, the Gutenberg Bible, Shakespeare's First Folio and the Lindisfarne Gospels - a guided tour around the British Library is the best way to take it all in.
