No video today, but instead some joy from a usual source of joy, librarians. The Oakland Public Library has a webpage devoted to objects found within books and left in the library. This, of course, brings to mind Found magazine, a publication I hadn’t thought of for years, but was really happy to find still exists. Honestly, I’m happy that any magazines still exist, but there’s something both voyeuristic and satisfying in a conceptual art manner about the glimpses these object offer into the lives of strangers. Personally, I want to know more about those Squinkies.
And a challenge to our librarian readers — what’s the most interesting thing you’ve found left in a book or in your library?
