It was the first time that most of us could visit the Research Library of the Royal Academy of Arts, a secret place on the second floor of the building, far from the hectic circulation of visitors flocking into the Manet exhibition on show.
RA librarian Nick Savage explained how happy he was to have an artist such as Güler Ates using the space to produce a series of work. You can read our blog here.
The exhibition Books of Dust can be seen at the Gallery Café in the Royal Academy of Arts, Burlington House, Piccadilly until 24 April 2013.
