SCEMS’ Cathy Shrank and Phil Withington have both contributed to a contemporary addition to the British Library’s Treasures Gallery: “Visions of Utopia”. Marking the 500th anniversary of Utopia‘s publication, the temporary display includes an original edition of Thomas More’s book and a diplomatic letter to Cardinal Thomas Wolsey (signed by More and others).

Located at the main British Library site close to Kings Cross, St Pancras and Euston, the Treasures Gallery is free to visit. The Utopia exhibition will be on show until 18 September.
