Michael’s hat explores The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University, September 1, 2018. The building was designed by architect Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and was completed in 1963.
What I needed to brighten my day: “Be merry and glad and reioyce”. Thanks @maryjanemillington for helping on that last “snarly secretary hand” word. #manuscript #specialcollections #beineckelibrary #rarebookcataloging

The Ripley Scroll is being prepared for an outgoing loan. The scroll will be displayed at the New York Historical Society in their Harry Potter exhibit. There is no magic to stabilize this object just painstaking work and skill. #gateslaboratory #beineckelibrary . #ripleyscroll
[Werbung - unbezahlt] Huhu ihr Lieben! Heute mal etwas ganz anderes von mir. Wenn ich im Urlaub bin, sehe ich mir gerne alte und prächtige Bibliotheken an. In tollen Gebäuden sind dort wahre Schätze untergebracht, die man zwar so nicht lesen würde und könnte, aber allein die Stimmung dort und die vielen alten Bücher wirken irgendwie beruhigend auf mich. Deshalb möchte ich euch gerne dieses Foto zeigen. Aufgenommen habe ich es im Juni diesen Jahres in der Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library an der Yale Universität in New Haven, USA. Der “Bücherturm“ ist komplett verglast und steht in einem futuristischen Gebäude mit lichtdurchlässigen Wänden um die teils seltenen Bücher zu schützen. Mich hat dieser Turm sehr beeindruckt. Besucht ihr auch Bibliotheken im Urlaub? ____________________________________________ #bookstagram #book #booknerd #booklove #booklover #bookworm #bookaholic #bookphotography #bücherliebe #bücherwurm #bücherliebe #lesen #lesenmachtglücklich #büchersüchtig #bookaddict #bookart #book #bookworm #büchersucht #wortverliebt #zeilenverliebt #yale #beineckelibrary #holiday #library

Pocket map project progress! Just a couple of thousand folded rare maps - inventoried, surveyed, and rehoused! We are done yet but our summer student Faith made a serious dent. Thank you to her, Sarah Davis, Frances Osugi, and Werner Haun. And a shout out to NEDCC for their help with the survey. @nedccpreserve #beineckelibrary #yulconservation #majorrehousingprojects #oldmaps #pocketmaps

Gabriel Kramer’s charming Architectura printed in Prague in 1600, made its way to the Yale library in 1743 #säulenbuchen #beineckelibrary #renaissancearchitecture
Nobilium amplissimae domus, from 1535 reprinting of Durantino’s 1524 Vitruvius translation. Annotations copy labels from Fra Giocondo’s 1511 Latin edition, same place from which the woodcuts were copied #vitruvius #renaissancearchitecture #romanhouse #beineckelibrary

A visit to @yale today has revealed one of the most exciting architectural gems and libraries of rare books. The nerd in me is definitely excited. #beinecke #beineckelibrary #yale #library #ivyleague #rarebooks

Inside the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University with my son. The windows are made of marble slices! The library has the most amazing sacred holy feeling inside. #Yale #yaleuniversity #beineckelibrary

It’s not typical to find an archive of papers where one of your favorite writer’s thinking is so well documented—but that’s exactly what I found this past spring. One of the coolest things I’ve done this year has been diving into the original index cards on which Annie Dillard drafted “Pilgrim at Tinker Creek.” Archival work can be really gratifying and addictive! . Also, a shout-out to my fav notebook company, @decompositionbook. . . . #beineckelibrary #archives #pilgrimattinkercreek #virginia #gradschool #reading #writing #readingissexy #anniedillard #research #writersofinstagram #beinecke #decompositionbook
Supported by four monolithic piers the cube almost looks as if floating. What is truly unique about this structure is that although it’s completely windowless, the marble panels which enclose it are translucent letting in just a smidge of filtered light. This design of course protects the over 200,000 volumes of rare books and manuscripts which are encased in an interior six story glass tower. #yale #beineckelibrary #rare #book #manuscript #architecture #bibliophile #newhaven #connecticut
