Happy Holidays!

During my winter break, I’ve found the following links interesting:

♥ … like this brief history of spectacles, complete with illustrations.

♥ … and this visual history of 150 years of visual manipulation before Photoshop.

♥ … and this article about the odd, fascinating things people asked librarians before Google. (Personally, these questions seem pretty standard to me. I don’t think things have changed that much. 😉 )

♥ … and this gallery of first-edition books annotated by their authors.

♥ … and finally, I laughed out loud at these recreations of classic paintings using office supplies.

Happy (almost) 2015!
