If you’re interested in the natural world and you’re looking for a new perspective, look no further than the Biodiversity Heritage Library. Currently weighing in at 57,897,176 pages, the library “is the world’s largest open access digital library for biodiversity literature and archives.”

You can browse the BHL’s collection by Title, Author, Date, Collection, or Contributor. For example, click on Collections, then on Extinct Species, and you get a further listing of 29 volumes from 28 titles, containing 11201 pages. Click on any of the linked titles and you’ll find yourself at a scanned version of the original document, which you can browse page by page.

Have fun!

Thanks to Colossal for the heads up

Melvin the Traveling Mini Machine by HEYHEYHEY

Now and then (for example here and here) we post about postal projects. The folks at Colossal Art & Design, who offer a wide window into the visually stunning, amusing and extraordinary, today offer up another take on the postcard: Melvin the Traveling Mini Machine. Less about writing than about obsessive genius, it’s offered here as a little comic relief following an intense 30 days of NaPoWriMo, readings and other celebrations of National Poetry Month. Enjoy!
