I post about bookish things less and less lately. Please enjoy this one, straight out of MetaFilter. “The Feather Book, digitized by and on display at McGill University: A seventeenth-century book containing illustrations of birds and men — composed of real feathers, beaks, and claws. More information about the book and its contents and history can be read here.”
I went to two interesting sessions yesterday which I blogged about for PLA.
I also went to a WebJunction event where I met some interesting regional librarians from Iowa, and a Library Journal awards dinner at the top of the Prudential celebrating the best small libraries where I met some new-to-Boston librarians from Missouri. It was a fun shindig made even better by the fact that the library who won last year, the Haines Borough Public Library is actually one that I’ve been to, way back when.
