If you are looking… NOAA Photo Library - Treasures of the Library The "Treasures of the Library" album and collection has been developed to share images from rare and unusual books that reside within the NOAA Central Library. These books and images have been waiting like a buried treasure to be discovered and put on display for the world to see. Within the 1,000,000 or so documents that reside in the NOAA Central Library are tens of thousands of jewels produced prior to the early Twentieth Century. The oldest of these is a translation of a treatise written by Hippocrates on the effect of climate on health printed in Latin in 1485. Many other early tomes concerned with observations of the natural world, scientific instruments, and scientific concepts have survived the ravages of the centuries and now reside within the Special Collections of the NOAA Central Library. Through these documents, much of the early evolution of scientific and geographic knowledge of our atmosphere, oceans, and the remote areas of our planet can be traced.

The Medieval Dance of Death There's an expression "to look like Death warmed over". The similar expression in Danish is "to look like Death from Lübeck". I have always wondered what this charming Christmas-city, with its great beer and overly sweet marzipan, had done to deserve such a disparaging sobriquet. "Death from Lübeck" was a 30 meter painting, showing Death in a long chain-dance with 24 humans - painted life-size - from all classes of society, from pope to infant. Death dances around in the procession, calling people to the dance, but most of the dancers-to-be try to decline. Pictures and text are combined so we have what may be one of the world's first and greatest comic strips.
Modeling History: Making a Stiff-Board Parchment Binding with a Slotted Spine This post comes from the 2012 Gladys Brooks conservation intern, Morgan Adams. Morgan is currently interning in the Thaw Conservation Center at the Morgan Library & Museum As the 2012 Gladys Brooks intern I had the pleasure of working with Senior Book Conservator Anne Hillam on a model of a stiff-boards parchment binding with a slotted spine, a style seen commonly in Italian bindings of the 16th-17th centuries. An example of a stiff-boards parchment binding with a slotted spine from the NYAM collection: Trincavello, De differentiis febrium, Venice, 1585. Left: Back cover and spine. Right: Front cover.

Brewing beer with Python and a Raspberry Pi I started brewing my own beer more than 10 years ago. Like most homebrewers, I started in my kitchen making extract-based brews. This required the least equipment and still resulted in really tasty beer.
