(or at least, that's what I like to think)
Yesterday I went to the Arús Public Library in Barcelona to see an exposition about the personal collection from Joan Proubasta, a man who has recollected Sherlock Holmes stories and memorabilia for almost fifty years and has recently handed it over to the Library. Or at least, that it is what I was told in the booklet I got from BCNegra 2012 a month ago, in which they specified that I could see all the material kept in the 172 boxes that contained Proubasta’s collection. Well, sadly, that was a lie. For starters, the exposition wasn’t about Sherlock Holmes but about “the rivals of Sherlock Holmes”, and was contained in one little space in which pastiches about the memorable character and other that were clearly based on him were displayed in nice old vitrines. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it, but I was disappointed at the same time, because I expected it to be this amazing collection of several items, all about my beloved Sherlock, as the info in the booklet promised. Arús Public library is a pretty old, nice and lovely space, and I don’t regret my visit at all, but I think it’s important to be accurate when explaining and giving info, and that annoyed me. By the way, the booklet marked march 30thas the last day of the expo, but it’s been extended until April.
