Bookworms living in or traveling around Europe will have two more literary sites to admire this spring.

One, at London's Victoria & Albert Museum, is already open.

It's called "Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature" and, as you might imagine, celebrates the beloved author of The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

That means focusing not just on her literature but also on her artwork, her farm experience, and her interest in the natural sciences.

Preview "Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature," which runs through January 8, 2023, at ArtNet.

The other is actually an entirely new museum in Rome, called the Museo della Cucina.

The culinary history institution will open in May and include a collection of 120 cookbooks, including a copy of the oldest mass-printed cookbook: Bartolemeo Platina’s On Honourable Pleasure and Health (1474).

You can take a virtual peek at the Museo della Cucina's literary artifacts (and other items) at Hyperallergic.
