Home School: Lovely Interactive Display of Early 19th-Century Hand-Drawn Illustrations of Minerals via kottke.org

October 26th, 2020 No comments
I love this zoomable interactive display of British & Exotic Mineralogy. To create it, Nicholas Rougeux collected 718 hand-drawn mineral illustrations by James Sowerby sourced from a pair of multi-volume books called British Mineralogy and Exotic Mineralogy, published between 1802 and 1817. Then he arranged them according to hue and brightness in a collage worthy of Knoll.

We took a walk last night and were met with this view — some, much needed, beauty in our day.

The view from my window at the family home in Mascalucia, Sicily. Imagine this outside your window each morning.
