The Adventures of....Books
I have now read The Adventures of a Pincushion by Dorothy Kilner (also known as Mary Pelham), or maybe the author was Mary Ann Kilner 1781 and The Adventures of a Watch by an anonymous author 1788. So you can probably see the current route my investigations are going.
I am currently reading The Adventures of a seven shilling piece by A. Hamilton 1811. And have the following two books on my desk at Chawton House Library- The Adventures of a Rupee by Helenus Scott 1781 and The Adventures of a Black Coat 1760.
My head is buzzing with ideas, having started on an idea from reading The Adventures of a Pincushion, I am sure the other books will lead to some other inetresting visual interpretations.
I'll keep you updated.
