These engravings are masterpieces. Look at the posture on the man and the detail of the skin, like fabric, that's been removed to reveal the underlying structures. The depth, textures, and detail on this engraving are artful AND technical. Such skill... I wish I could learn. @chet_stryker (best artist I know) #Repost @surgeonshall with @get_repost ・・・ Some colourful anatomical illustration for the weekend!

It’s #worldtypewriterday , and we’re celebrating with mystery writer Dashiell Hammett (The Maltese Falcon, The Thin Man, Red Harvest), whose Royal typewriter was donated to the San Francisco Public Library, where it resides (with its carrying case) in the San Francisco History Center. 💥 Did you know that SFPL has a typewriter room at the Main Library? Come to the Magazines & Newspapers Center on the 5th floor, where you can type the day away, or at least 60 minutes when others are waiting. On a first come, first served basis. #typewriterlove #DashiellHammett #sfhistorycenter #sfpubliclibrary #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram

The #pelican in her #piety is the #symbol featured on the #flag of #Louisiana . This image of a pelican feeding her young with her own blood was adopted into Christianity by the 2nd century and can be found in medieval illuminations and bindings. You can see another version in our current exhibition, "In Our Nature: Flora and Fauna of the Americas," open through September 15th. #rarebooksontheroad #floraandfauna #pelicaninherpiety #sunshine #neworleans #librariesofinstagram #iglibraries #ig_libraries
Here's an object from our collection that makes us feel like #summertime . . . along with a little Folger history. During a renovation in the summer of 1999, we found this old soda bottle in the wall of the Folger's tea room. According to the @cocacola Company, this bottle once held a fruit juice product that was bottled in Washington D.C. and sold in their East Coast region between 1930-1932. The Folger Shakespeare Library opened in 1932. #ShareaCokeWith @FolgerLibrary. #FolgerFinds . . . #hiddentreasure #buriedtreasure #Coke #CocaCola #oldbottle #vintage #iglibraries #igarchives #FolgerShakespeareLibrary #ShareaCoke

"A New Mapp of the World" has more than just the world on it! It includes a diagram of the planets and some of their moons in orbit. This map only depicts "My Very Excellent Mother Just Served...," though; "Us," "Nine," and the now-dwarfed "Pizzas" had yet to be discovered at the time of its creation!

Hawksbill sea turtles are infrequent visitors to the Golden Isles, but who can resist scientific illustrations this old? Digitized versions of antiques like this one deserve to be shared. They hearken back to time when natural history was more respected than it is today. It reminds me of why conservation is important and what we're trying to conserve. #Repost @biodivlibrary • • • • • Hawksbill Sea Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata). #SciArt by Friedrich Carl Vogel for Eduard Rüppell, Neue Wirbelthiere zu der Fauna von Abyssinien Gehörig (1835-1840).

[In our best Emily Litella voice]: “What’s all this fuss about a Dikes & Bikes Festival this weekend?” 🚲🚲🚲 [The voice of authority aka #snl anchor person]: “Um, it’s #dykesonbikes , and they lead the #SFPride parade on Sunday, June 24.”🏍 🏍 [Emily Litella]: “Oh...that’s very different. Never mind.” 🛵🏍🛵 Look for SFPL marchers, our beloved bookmobile, and our Spoke and Word “dyke on a bicycle” joining the fun along Market Street. We are full of pride! 🛵🏍🛵 And this is Dikes & Bikes; Holland in Skit and Sketch by Nels Slis and Hugh Jans (1953), a recent acquisition that just cracked us up in an Emily Litella kind of way. #EmilyLitella #GildaRadner #dykesonbikes #sfpride #sfpride2018 #scowah #sfplbookarts #sfpubliclibrary #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈#makeAmericagayagain

Are you one of the millions of travelers heading to national parks this summer? Have you considered taking the train? In 1940, Union Pacific encouraged tourists to travel by train to Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Grand Canyon National Parks with the promotional brochure shown here, connecting with motor coaches to travel from park to park, completing a tour in as little as three days (but we recommend staying longer). . . . . .

Materiality! Visited the new exhibition Touching Treasures at Leiden University Libraries @universiteitleiden. It focuses on the material aspects of text and prints. For example a book is displayed with damage from a huge powder explosion in 1807 in Leiden. The book survived, its owner did not. Or a leather satchel with patchwork and embroidery made to store loose leaves of a West-African manuscript. Especially for this exhibition a globe was prepared. With a print, originally from 1621, you could make a globe yourself (or let it be made). The print is the only known copy today, and no globe has survived the ages. The original print was digitalized and the scan was used to make this globe. You can watch a video of the origin of the print and making of the globe by map curator @mapstorms on YouTube: https://youtu.be/q7tjQ0bCR4g Do visit when you're in Leiden. The exhibition is free of charge. #exhibition #touchingtreasures #materiality #books #bookstagram #instabook #library #librariesofinstagram #iglibraries #leidenuniversitylibraries #leidenuniversity #universiteitleiden #satchel #explosion #globe #cartography #specialcollections
