52 Weeks of Reading the Collections: Visual Index and Reflections
52 weeks of Reading the Collections has come to an end – thanks to everyone who contributed, read, and shared our posts over the past year! We’re ending the series with our traditional visual index:
Thanks as always to Sarah and Julie in the Reading Room team for getting the posts up every week.
After taking a small break, we’ll be moving away from our ’52 weeks of…’ format to shorter series of posts around particular themes.
We’re also intending to have more posts on news and events, new accessions and cataloguing discoveries mixed in with the in-depth posts about items from the collections.
We’d be interested to know which themes and topics have interested you the most over the past four years – let us know in the comments below and we can revisit these in more detail. Please do take a look at our previous visual indexes for some inspiration:
Historical How To’s, Inspiring Illustrations and Fantastic Bindings.
We look forward to hearing from you!
