Check out this adorable, delicate little walnut book! Made from nothing but a walnut and a ribbon, the book opens to reveal an accordion of tiny photographs of Maine. It appears to be a souvenir or memory book from someone’s trip. A charming and mysterious miniature!

-Laura H.

Little mementos like this were actually super common in Victorian America! If anyone cares for sources/examples, I can rustle some up.

UPDATE: We just purchased a second walnut miniature book: 1933 Chicago Century of Progress, World’s Fair In A Nutshell. I will post a twin picture with the two together when it arrives!

Otherwise, Anne Bromer’s Miniature Books: 4,000 years of Tiny Treasures has information about “St. Louis Exposition in a Nutshell” from the 1904 World’s Fair, which is the earliest example I have found (see below). I would love to see older examples, if you can find them!

A very cool project out of Romania: a new web series tackling current issues in copyright with sweet animations.  The combination of animation and copyright is music to my ears.

Check out the Indiegogo page here to contribute (and to see another video and some fancy infographic-y type things explaining the project).  Judging by the amount of work they’ve already put into the project, I’m really excited to see where they can take it with some funding.  I think I’ll pick up one of the t-shirts myself.

Gracias a thegloballibrarian encontré este interesante proyecto de divulgación sobre la copia. ¡Apoyenlos! Yo quiero un afiche y una camiseta…

Ya 20 años de la Brújula mágica. Programa infantil de Audiovisuales (1976-2004), programadora pública colombiana.

♪♫El cuentero trae un secreto en su historia
Sigan a la brújula que nos llevará leeejosss♫♬

Viendo este video, recordé El parque Jaime Duque y lo famoso que es su barco. En este mismo navío, se han grabado varios videos, entre ellos éste que conocí hace poco, aunque es algo viejito, de Génesis de Colombia.

Creo que una pasada por este lugar luego de tantos años no estaría mal.
