Paul and Mary Mellon collected books on alchemy and the occult. They were devotees of #Jung . She died young and Paul Mellon married Bunny. Yale owns the collection #oakspringgarden #paulmellon #beineckelibrary
I was at the Beinecke library at Yale today reading the papers of #vitasackvillewest . My friend Tim Young, the great curator said- before we leave I have to open a cabinet. Opening double doors these 2 chairs were revealed. The design is by #Picasso , the chairs belonged to #gertrudestein and the embroidery is by none other than Alice B Toklas. On the wall nearby is a painting of Alice by #doramaar , Picasso’s lover #yaleuniveristy #beineckelibrary @beineckelibrary #instaarchitecture #instagardens #rarebooks #sissinghurst #virginiawoolf #gardens #gardendesign #haroldnicholson #landscapedesign #orlando #embroidery #frenchculture #cubism #instagardens #instaart #instaarchitecture #interiordesign #embroidery #antiquetextiles #drawing
"Bibliomania" exhibit opens today @beineckelibrary and the Yale Philharmonia presents Shostakovich & Beethoven this evening, to name just two great things happening this weekend in New Haven. Stop by Olea after viewing the exhibit, or before the concert, to enjoy Tapas at the Bar, like our gambas al ajillo (wild shrimp, garlic, olive oil, parsley) with a glass of Spanish Albariño. #yale #beineckelibrary #wintermeals #winter #tapas #shrimp #dining #dinner #menu #spanishfood #mediterraneanfood #restaurant #food #appetizer #entree #dessert #beer #craftbeer #wine #cocktails #cocktail #drinks #bar #chef #instayum #NewHaven #ctfood #ctfoodlovers

A day in New Haven with the love of my life #peabodymuseum #beineckelibrary #ikea
Inside the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University and a peek at one of its most interesting volumes. The building designed by #GordonBunshaft is definitely worth a peek inside if you find yourself in New Haven, CT. Also pictured is the #VoynichManuscript a mysterious, indecipherable tome that is the subject of much inquiry. #igersnewengland #travelblogger

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

As a medievalist I rarely get to handle such jarring personal documents as this: the #alienregistrationcard of Professor Ezio Levi d'Ancona. The #beineckelibrary holds the Levi Papers, and sorting through them this past week gave me a tiny peek into the frustration and hope that he and his wife Flora experienced as they lived, for example, in a #ciudadjuarez hotel to hear about whether they could get a non quota #visa from the US government. Levi, a prominent #Jewish #Italian scholar of Romance Literature (of #sephardic descent), was expelled from his chair at #universitàfedericoii according to #fascist law. Letters of support in French, Spanish, Italian, and English show how strongly the academic community rallied around him. There was such a flood of European scholars in the US in 1940 that one official at Hunter College, who wished to offer him a job in 1941, said they were constrained to pay a low wage ($3000pa) to offer more contracts to those who needed them.
I've made it to New Haven for a week of archival research at the #beineckelibrary and communal meals with my sister et al at the #hellatight #coop (filled with more sofas and plants each time I visit). :)
G even loves the construction outside the library #nineyearoldphotographer #beineckelibrary

[구텐베르크 금속활자 42행 성서] 예일대학교 바이네키 도서관에는 총 18만 권에 달하는 희귀 도서들이 보관되어 있다. 도서들을 보호하기 위해 창을 없애고 1.25인치 두께의 대리석을 이용해 자연광을 들이도록 함과 동시에 자외선을 차단한다. 검증되진 않았지만 화재 발생 시 유리관 안에 있는 공기가 수 초 내로 빠지도록 했다는 얘기도 심심찮게 듣기도 했다. 이 모든 게 건축설계사의 세심함과 역사를 귀하게 여기는 데서 출발한 것이라 생각한다. 그 중 가장 눈에 띄는 것이 세상에 단 21개의 완성본만이 존재한다고 알려진 구텐베르크 금속활자로 (1455년) 만들었다는 42행 성서다. 더 놀라운 건 이곳 예일에 두 권의 완성본이 존재한다는 것이다. 더욱 나를 놀라게 하는 것이 바로 세계 최초 금속활자로 작품을 만든 우리 선조들의 걸작 직지심체요절과 그것을 인쇄한 금속활자 아닐까? 1377년 부터 긴 세월을 거스른 것만으로도 대단하지만 구텐베르크 보다 무려 70년 이상 먼저 제작된 것일듯 하다. 외국 문물을 보고 느끼고 즐기는 것도 좋지만 가끔은 우리 조상들의 노력과 지혜, 혼을 담아낸 것에 자부심과 긍지를 느끼는 게 더 중요할 수 있다고 믿는다. . #YaleUniversity #Beineckelibrary , #rarebooks #gutenbergbible #구텐배르크성서 #직지심체요절 #신토불이 #우리게좋아
