Wood type lovers, lend a hand! The Hamilton Type Museum got flooded last night. According to them” Four inches of rain in northeastern Wisconsin last night has left us with an inch of standing water in the museum (it’s bad). The 800 gallons of water we’ve sucked off the floor looks like beer (we’re calling it Hamilton Stout). We need your help raising funds to repair the roof, clean off type and buy more paper towels. Consider a donation today, any amount helps.”
Cool literary detective work – a book conservator at Brown University uncovered a Paul Revere engraving stuffed into a medical text that once belonged to a member of the university’s class of 1773. Full NYTimes story here.
Also, what?! Snoop Dogg published a “smokeable book” titled Rolling Words.
Have a wonderful weekend.
