Now, on to this week's post.
- What is a box binding?
- What does the Hebrew letter Lamed have to do with a camel and Charlton Heston?
- Why is the Bay Psalm Book included in an exhibit of "Jewish Firsts"?
- Where did Antonio de Montezinus believe he had found one of the lost tribes of Israel?
- How did Michael Gratz personalize his pocket almanac?
This is the last weekend for this amazing exhibition; come Monday we will be taking it down as we prepare to open Networking Before the Net: Sharing Information in the Pre-Digitial Age on January 29. So come in, take a look and enjoy--before In the Beginning comes to an end!
