Back to work on Monday. Bah. Do not want. Apart from that, Happy New Year everyone!
Mercurius Politicus has found some splendid manuscript, palaeography and book history resources. Manuscript sources are the next big growth area for digital early modernists, as digitizers work out that although it’s not that easy, it’s not that hard either.
But there are losses in digitization. Diapsalmata has been reading a special issue of Image and Narrative on Digital Archives, in which several articles engage with the relationship between digital humanities and the archive.
Whereas Ted Vallance has some thoughts on those quaint paper book thingummies in 2008. (His New Year’s resolution is to buy fewer rubbish books in 2009.)
Chris at the Virtual Stoa has a New Year’s Resolution I can really get behind. Eat more butter. Mmmmmmm.
