Here’s a little something for almost everyone.

If you like Egyptian history, you can help transcribe papyrus scrolls! Crowdsourcing is a wonderful thing.

If you’re into the art of the book, check out Facsimile Dust Jackets for a huge gallery.

If alchemy intrigues you, the Lloyd Library right here in Cincinnati is running an entire exhibit!

And if you want to see smart, sexy men, there’s a calendar just for you -- Men of the Stacks. (The calendar also benefits the It Gets Better project.)

Two New York Times articles finish today’s post. The first discusses Baryshnikov’s archives which are en route to the New York Public Library; the other excerpts passages from Spalding Gray’s journals, which will soon be published.

Tomorrow: links from others!
