Wolf Holbein

Hey! It's magic! (793.8) I have returned...

... but only to report, and congratulate, Hilary Mantel who won the Man Booker Prize for her historical novel Wolf Hall.

The book features Thomas Cromwell. Why is that name so familiar, you ask? You might know Cromwell from the great portrait (pictured above) by Hans Holbein (the Younger). Actually Holbein plays a role in this book.
