Postage stamp celebrating 300 years of Finnish book printing
Daily Thoughts 12/25/2012
I checked the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library this morning. Happy holidays.
I also spent some time today finishing reading Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, A Novel by Robin Sloan. It is set in San Francisco and involves a strange bookstore and a bookish cult. It has a mix of literature and technology in it which is different.
I like how Robin Sloan combines the history of print with book technology like book scanners and e-readers. There is a mix of bookish and techie humor throughout the book. At least part of this book has to do with typography and codes as well. I read the book because the New York Librarians Meetup plans on discussing it on Monday, January 28, 2013.
