A stunning blog: BibliOdyssey


To read from its header this is a blog on "books, illustrations, history, science, Visual Materia Obscura and eclectic book art". And is it ever! I have been looking and looking since I found it.

The blog takes its visual feed from a huge Flickr stream, of many many sets full of good sized images, covering all cultures and historic periods, with an emphasis on what can probably be called "curio"s of print. All of this is maintained by a gentleman from Sydney, who goes by the short name of Paul K. A generous person since his material has a creative commons license attached to it, which only asks that you attribute back to him!

I am linking only one image to here. It is a matter of either one or of hundreds, you see! So, you really have to go and check this out for yourselves! This one image is one of the covers of a series books entitled "The Eight Dog Chronicles" by Kyokutei Bakin (1767-1848).
