Newest “Bibliofestoonery” Website

British Library book ornament example

The British Library has created a searchable blog that displays randomly-selected examples of a million (!) nifty illustrations and ornaments from the Library’s vast and venerable book collection.

We’ve posted a permanent link to “The Mechanical Curator” on the Atlanta Booklover’s Blog’s “Bibliofestoonery” page so you can find it quickly later on.

You’re welcome.

Found via an email from the Atlanta Friends of the Alphabet’s Carol Gray; she found it at the calligraphy blog Painted Speech
