Mick & His Three Sets of Everyman’s Library Books
At the Everyman’s Launch party in 1991 – the present era of Everyman’s Library – Mick Jagger bought three complete sets. Says Campbell of Jagger buying three sets at such a crucial time for the re-launch of the Everyman’s Library imprint: “an incredible piece of luck at the start.”¹ And in another article for The Telegraph in 2006, Campbell reiterated Jagger’s excitement and purchase, saying, “Mick took to them, and ordered a few sets at the launch party.”²
Madonna & Her Country House & Everyman’s Library Books
And in the same Telegraph article mentioned above, the article goes on to talk about Madonna’s affection for Everyman’s Library books: “Madonna reportedly likes the new-look Everymans so much that she has silted her country house with them.”²
The article points out as well that Madonna credits Everyman’s Library for bringing to her attention Herodotus – The Histories. It’s not every day that I am on the same stage/at-the-same-level with Madonna, but with regard to never having heard of Herodotus until the Everyman’s Library edition brought it to my attention – well on that front, Madonna and I stand side by side!
