Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. 1961-63. Gordon Bunshaft and Natalie de Blois (Skidmore Owings Merrill). Icy and austere though it may seem, Beinecke can pack an emotional wallop. The walls, though windowless, are composed of Vermont marble so thin that it permits the passage of sunlight, thus lighting the interior. The marble is intersected by a grid of Vierendeel trusses made of steel prefab crosses. The trusses are externally clothed by granite and, internally, by a granite-concrete aggregate. The trusses offload their weight to four large pyramid piers and form a lattice with mathematical proportions: 5 x 10 x 15 boxes. That order is why some have called Beinecke an example of New Formalism. Beinecke, one of the world's premier manuscript libraries, is nicknamed ;the laboratory of the humanities'. I prefer its other nickname: the jewel box. #Newhaven #nhv #elmcity #yale #beinecke #som #skidmoreowingsmerrill #bunshaft #deblois #granite #marble #sixties #modern #architecture #modernarchitecture #archi_ologie #archi_daily #geometry

In the midst of a neoclassical quadrangle there sits a modern marble facade. . At Yale, Gordon Bunshaft’s famous Beinecke Library of 1963 faces its neighbor, the University Commons, designed by Carrère and Hastings and completed in 1902. Both are painted here by Adam Van Doren, a Yale instructor who has exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery. . The ICAA invites you to join Adam on Thursday, February 21 for an exploration of Yale’s storied architectural history, and a showcase of his beautiful watercolor illustrations of the campus from his new book, “The Stones of Yale.” .

It’s exhibit mounting day at Gallery344, and time for my exhibit “The Search for a Collection: Reading the Artist’s Books of Melissa Shook” to go live. It’s my photographic exploration of the artist’s books of photographer @m_melissa_shook , a collection of which found its way to my desk at work last year. Stay tuned for details about the opening reception next week! . . #melissashook #artistsbook #artistsbooks #photographiccollection #photoexhibit #photoexhibition #photographicexploration #photoseries #photographicseries #realia #womenphotographers #womenphotographer #scope #gallery344 #newhavenart #newhaven #connecticutartist #beinecke #brbl #beineckelibrary
My boss knows I cross stitch, so after I started cataloging maps at the end of last year, he told me I could catalog any embroidered maps in the collection. Honestly, I didn’t expect him to find any. Then, this past week, he came to my desk with a huge folder and said he had a New Year’s present for me. It turned out to be this gorgeous map of England embroidered by a 9-year-old(!) back in 1815. You better believe I had a blast working with it! (Apologies for the glare; it was encased in mylar.) — Giddings, Amelia, creator. Map of England / Amelia Giddings aged 9 years. Anno Domini 1815. #MapMonday #ManuscriptMonday #Embroidery #CartographicSampler #Beinecke #JustCataloged
Rare book stacks at the #Beinecke library at #Yale university. The external "windows" are made of marble which is translucent so allows some light through but absorbs harmful UV rays.
The way we were #OTD , BRBL under construction January 2, 1963. Reminder: the #BeineckeLibrary reading room and exhibition hall reopen today for the new year. Hope to see you soon! #Librariesofinstagram #Beinecke #Yale #YaleUniversity #HappyNewYear #NewHaven #NHV #gscia #VisitSoon
What a great best nine for the year: crafting, puzzles, collection material, and tour guide Brenna! It all seems pretty on brand 😉 It looks like my first year in my new digs was a success! Here’s to another year of nerdy stitching, amazing books, and more long S jokes. #2018BestNine #Beinecke #CrossStitch #RareBooks

Löwe im sogenannten Voynich-Manuskript (Beinecke MS 408): Der Abschnitt mit 12 Tierkreiszeichen gehört zu mehreren thematisch voneinander unterscheidbaren Teilen der rätselhaften Handschrift aus dem frühen 15. Jahrhundert, wobei hier Steinbock und Wassermann fehlen und dafür Widder und Stier doppelt ausgeführt sind. Die genauere Bedeutung der Abbildungen ist - wie fast das ganze Manuskript - noch vollkommen unerschlossen. Es lässt sich noch nicht einmal ausschließen, dass der Codex eine spätmittelalterliche Fälschung ist, also gar keinen sinnvollen Inhalt transportiert. #voynich #caturday #medieval #literature #mittelalter #spätmittelalter #literatur #manuscripts #zodiac #zodiacsigns #leo #lion #löwe #animals #fauna #illuminated #codex #codices #beinecke #yale #mystery

When the books be so rare... — “Security measures were significantly increased after the well-known antiques dealer Edward Forbes Smiley III was caught cutting maps from rare books with an X-acto blade in 2005. Smiley's scheme was discovered when he dropped his concealed tool in the reading room, and he subsequently served several years in prison for thefts of rare documents valued in millions of dollars from the Beinecke and other libraries. The library operates under a closed stack system, and rigorous security rules now allow carefully controlled access to materials under video surveillance.” — “The glass-enclosed central stacks (not accessible to the public) can be flooded with a mix of Halon 1301 and Inergen fire suppressant gas if fire detectors are triggered.” — “After an infestation of the death watch beetle was discovered in 1977, the Beinecke Library helped pioneer the non-toxic method of controlling paper-eating pests by freezing books and documents at −33 °F for three days. All new acquisitions are given this treatment as a precaution, and the deep freeze method is now widely accepted for pest control in special collections libraries.” . . . . . . . . . . #newhaven #lifeontheroad #connecticut #shotoftheday #followyourpassion #yaleuniversity #travelphotography #travelblogger #rarebooks #yalecampus #wanderlust #architecture #visittheusa #exploring #visitnewhaven #visitct #visitusa #roadtrip #followyourdreams #travelguide #lightroom #journeyman #followyourheart #jeepandkangal #crosscountry #architecturephotography #beinecke #yale #travel

Peter Pan books in the Yale's rare book collections. . It was a delightful surprise to see a section of Peter Pan books among distinguished-looking leather-bound books in the rare book library. At the same time, I had an odd feeling when I spotted rather familiar looking children's book series from my elementary school days in Japan ... Majorities of books in the stack are identified by a tall bookmark like insert with bar code (the 2nd photo). . . . #beinecke #beineckelibrary #beineckerarebookandmaniscriptlibrary #rarebooklibrary #rarebookcollection #yaleuniversity #yale #librarylover #librarylovers #library #libraries #bookshelves #booksheif #bookshelfie #peterpan #peterpanbook
Fantastic trip to the Harry Potter exhibit at the NY Historical Society. Some of our very own #beineckelibrary loans are on display. Best field trip ever! #beinecke #harrypotter

Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University . The library was designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (1963), and is one of the largest buildings in the world entirely dedicated to rare books and manuscripts. A 6-story book stack encased in glass in the middle of the structure is very impressive (see the 2nd photo in black & white), but the outer shell is equally stunning. The wall of the building is comprised of square panels of marble, and the light filters through the marble to give a golden amber glow inside. . . . #beinecke #beineckelibrary #beineckerarebookandmaniscriptlibrary #rarebooklibrary #rarebookcollection #yaleuniversity #yale #librarylover #librarylovers #library #libraries #libraryinterior #libraryarchitecture #architecture #arcitecturalphotography #architecturephotography #gordonbunshaft #gordonbunshaftarchitect #skidmoreowingsmerrill #architectureovers #archihunter #architecturephoto #modernistarchitecture

What a pleasure to visit: an unbelievable building — the 1963 Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library in New Haven by Gordon Bunshaft. The spine of the building is a climate-controlled glass tower of books and manuscripts, encircled by exhibit displays. The facade is covered by 3cm thin translucent marble plates — how freaking brilliant. It also has an adjacent sunken sculpture courtyard by Noguchi. 👉💟💟💟#beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #beinecke #beineckelibrary #bunshaft #gordonbunshaft #skidmoreowingsmerrill #newhaven #yaleuniversity #rarebooks #voynichmanuscript #iconicarchitecture #architecturephotography #midcenturymodern #concreteandmarble #translucentmarble #1millionbooks #isamunoguchi #sculpturegarden #birdsofamerica #audubon #ornithology #concretebeauty
Part 5, No.2 Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University, Connecticut. This place really stands out with its granite frame & inch and a quarter thick, translucent Vermont marble panels.

I was able to visit one of the top libraries in the world today. YALE UNIVERSITY BEINECKE RARE BOOK AND MANUSCRIPT LIBRARY -- NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, USA This particular library is one of the largest buildings in the entire world that is strictly dedicated to rare books and manuscripts. I have a huge love for books and you can always find one on me. “Beinecke Library became the repository for books in the Yale collection printed anywhere before 1800, books printed in Latin America before 1751, books printed in North America before 1821, newspapers and broadsides printed in the United States before 1851, European tracts and pamphlets printed before 1801, and Slavic, East European, Near and Middle Eastern books through the eighteenth century, as well as special books outside these categories. Now, the collection spans through to the present day, including such modern works as limited-edition poetry and artists' books. The library also contains thousands of linear feet of archival material, ranging from ancient papyri and medieval manuscripts to the archived personal papers of modern writers.” #Yale #YaleUniversity #library #Beinecke

It’s still too surreal to believe but my run as a PhD student at Yale has finally come to an end. Needless to say, I’m happy to move on.
