As Liberty's archivist, Anna Buruma's name often pops up on this blog. Next month, when she visits Bloomsbury territory, readers in Britain will have a chance to hear her speak about the long history of the London department store's iconic prints. Tickets to the event -- scheduled for Thursday, September 6 at 7 p.m. -- are available online.

In the meantime, you can learn more about Buruma's work in this 2010 NY Times piece, or check out one of my past posts on her book for the V & A (click here and scroll down).
