Pinter archives on display

An exhibition displaying a selection of personal writings and photographs from the Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter opens today at the British Library in London.

Designed by the library’s in-house Design Office at the Sir John Ritblat Gallery in London’s Euston, the exhibition offers the public a taste of the library’s latest acquisition, which was purchased last month by a consortium for a reported £1.1m.

More than 100 boxes of carefully preserved writings and a substantial number of images and press cuttings are now being archived by the library over the next nine months, including, the library says, recent and future e-mail correspondence by Pinter, which will be made available on CD-ROM.

The exhibition runs until 13 April at the British Library, London NW1.
