This is a blog that focuses like a laser on topics concerning librarians, museum professionals, and information centers while also focusing like a poor dying flashlight on books, science, technology, current events, the funny.
In a move to assert the relevancy of the analog book, designer Oscar Lhermitte has created an ingenious automatic bookmark. Each time you turn the page it automatically marks the page you are on. It doesn't work well in books over 700 pages, sorry It and War and Peace (two books I read back-to-back every summer). It's pretty cool, but why didn't someone think of this 500 years ago. Other inventions of Mr. Lhermitte are the automatic Victrola winder and the buffalo nickel holder (holds exactly one buffalo nickel!)
