The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

An Attic Advent: 17th December
Indian Pattern A4 Notebook
This fabulously flamboyant design is a detail from an album of Indian flower designs in the V&A collection (opaque water-colour on paper. India, 1750-1800 © Victoria and Albert Museum V&A: 4779-1854). We thought it so splendid that we chose it to adorn an A4 soft backed notebook.
Created exclusively for the V&A. 46 leaves of 140gsm plain cartridge paper, acid free, sized for wet media.
