A Look Back At The Evolution Of Publishing With The British Library (kind of)


What an amazing resource WP blogger Tara Sparling has alerted us to here – just had a peek at the children’s book illustrations uploaded by those diligent British Library people. Marvellous stuff! Thank you so much Tara.

That sounds awfully highfalutin, doesn’t it? I mean, it’s Saturday morning. Who wants to read about the history of publishing at this hour of a bank holiday weekend?

Don’t worry. I wouldn’t do it to you. I just thought I might share some resource news with you before I go into hibernation, because the clocks are going back on Saturday, all the leaves will be off the trees by Monday, and because, well, Ireland.

I read recently that the British Library made over 1,000,000 images(taken from old books) free to any and all users on the marvellous Interweb. It’s a fantastic resource for bloggers in particular, and I couldn’t resist fiddling around with some of them. So in the interests of passing on this marvellous information, here we go.
