Welcome to Lilium's Compendium, a collection of Muses, inspiration and predominately 20th Century History. There will be a bountiful batch of books, fervent films, meaningful music and a lot of rhyming and alliterations.


I am Lilium James (surname withheld), a young Welsh gentleman with a rather misleading name but you can just call me Lily. Slightly confusing I know but I'm sure you'll survive. 


The Compendium houses a collection of amazing people, performances and places to discover educated elegance and artistic aspirations. 


I wanted to make a source of interesting information, reading recommendations and passionate people, to make a place of grounded intelligence and depth in a time where both of those qualities are running a bit short. 


Thanks! Message sent.
