Hull History Centre, Hull Museums and Galleries, and the Philip Larkin Society, have all helped to share the story of Larkinís life and work through archiving, curating and exhibiting artefacts that shed light on Larkinís many passions and interests. From his collection of Frog and Toad related ornaments and toys, to his vast record collection and personal library, these items reveal much about the hidden life of a complex polymath of a man.
