Legacy Page Welcome to MAPfrappe, my interactive site for cartographic “mixtures.” I hope you find it interesting! — Kelvin Thompson Compare Geographic Sizes Version 3.56.Last updated 27 Dec 2018. London artist Rich McCor remodels most iconic landmarks using clever cutouts Londoner Rich McCor has turned the London Eye into a bicycle, Big Ben into a watch and the Trafalgar Square lions into playful kittens. And the 28-year-old, who works for a creative agency, does it all with nothing more than paper and a pair of scissors. Using just intricately-designed cut outs, this innovative artist has impressively transformed some of the capital's most familiar sights into his own celebrated brand of quirky artwork. McCor's first attempt at transforming a traditionally well-recognised London landmark - Big Ben - happened earlier this year, using a paper watch strap to obscure the clock face Rich said: 'My favourite cut out so far is the bottle of champagne at the fountains near Tower Bridge. It took about 50 snaps until I got the right angle, depth of field and timing.

Collaborating With Your School Librarian Literacy instruction, especially on the secondary level, is currently undergoing a major overhaul. Teachers and authors Penny Kittle, Kelly Gallagher, Donalyn Miller, and others are leading the way in this resurgence—advocating for book clubs and student choice of reading material, promoting diversity in reading selections, and even providing grants for teachers to build classroom libraries. While it’s easy to get excited about educators promoting these research-based literacy strategies, there is one group of educators who know that none of this is new: school librarians. The South Carolina Association of School Librarians is a strong network of school librarians working across the state to advocate for school librarianship and our vital role in student achievement. In 2016, for example, the network presented research showing that standardized test scores increase in schools with a full-time, certified school librarian.

Download More than 2,500 Images of Vibrant Japanese Woodblock Prints and Drawings From the Library of Congress Thanks to the Library of Congress, you can browse and download high-resolution copies of more than 2,500 Japanese woodblock prints and drawings from the library’s online collection. The prints, most of which are dated before the 20th-century, were amassed from a large group of collectors, including notable donors such as President William Howard Taft and Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. Despite the diversity of genres and traditions represented by the library’s large collection, the most prolific works are ones created in the tradition of the Japanese art form of Ukiyo-e or Yokohama-e. Ukiyo-e was developed in the city of Edo (now Tokyo) between 1600 and 1868 during a relatively peaceful period. The subject and inspiration for many of the prints includes that of entertainment and leisure, such as scenes from kabuki theater and fashionable restaurants.

Photographer Tracks Down People He Snapped In His Hometown Almost 40 Years Ago To Recreate The Remarkable Images Photo © by Chris Porsz/Geoff Robinson Paramedic Chris Porsz spent hours walking around the city of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire (Great Britain) in the late 1970s and 80s, taking candid shots of punks and policemen, siblings and sweethearts, traders and teenagers. More than three decades later, Chris has reconstructed a handful of his favourite photos from his collection. He spent the last seven years tracking down the people in his pictures and persuading them to pose once again. His hard work paid off and he has now published his photos in a new book, “Reunions”.

The instrument sounds acoustic, but amplification (pickups + contacts) recovers various audio qualities.

On Plants Historia Plantarum (On plants) is a natural science encyclopedia, in which animals, plants, and minerals are illustrated and described for their medicinal properties, in keeping with the medieval tradition of the tacuina medievali (medieval health handbooks), and from which the codex derives its most common name, Tacuinum sanitatis. The work was first compiled as Taqwim al-Sihhah (The maintenance of health) by the 11th-century Baghdad physician Ibn Buṭlān, and chief among his Greek sources was Dioscorides, a physician in the first century. The court in Sicily commissioned a Latin translation in the mid-13th century. The work is divided into sections ordered alphabetically, each of which is decorated with precious architectural motifs that intersect like branches stippled with gold.
