Bill Woodrow's 'Sitting On History' was purchased for the British Library by Carl Djerassi and Diane Middlebrook in 1997. It was photographed in the foyer (lobby) of the British Library. Sitting on History, with its ball and chain, refers to the book as the captor of information which we cannot escape.
