Writing Britain: Wastelands to Wonderlands British Library Exhibition Poster
Last Saturday I held the prize draw for the pair of tickets to the British Library's summer exhibition 'Writing Britain: Wastelands to Wonderlands'. Of the 19 entrants (2 via (correct) blog comments, 17 via Twitter), I'm pleased to announce that the winner is:

Gemma Thomas (@GemmaMotek)

Gemma is a fellow book enthuiast who blogs over at The Journey is the Reward. Congratulations to Gemma - I hope you enjoy the fantastic exhibition.

And thanks to all the entrants of the competition. For those of you who entered via the blog and were wondering, my favourite fictional landscape was (b) Egdon Heath from Thomas Hardy's The Return of the Native. I'm a big fan of Wuthering Heights, but the landscape is described far less than you'd imagine in the book, and Hardy creates such a vivid portrait of rustic heath life, that I had to go for him.

Finally, thanks to the British Library for providing the tickets for this giveaway. The Writing Britain exhibition runs until September 2012, and I'd really encourage lovers of British Literature to pop along and have a look before then - it's worth it!
