THE STORY OF BOOKS where stories are told and books are made The Story of Books is developing plans for the first working museum dedicated to all aspects of books. The project is led by creative entrepreneur, Emma Balch. The Story of Books will have a permanent, physical HQ at Baskerville Hall near Hay-on-Wye. The Story of Books is also creating a series of collaborative and inclusive experiences – exhibitions, events, tours, digital projects and curated spaces – around the globe.
