A Catalogue of a Young Country Ladies Library
Louis Porter compiles here a collection of photographic postcards depicting women engaged in the act of reading, juxtaposed with a list written by Anne Baker in 1712 of recommended items to be included in a “Ladies” library.
Most of the postcards, which were collected by Louis Porter between 2019-2023, are from the early 20th century, when the photographic postcard was a new invention. They are images in motion that simultaneously present a personal experience within a technically mediated cultural framework.
