IONTW – March 5, 2017

Tuesday, March 7 is Luther Burbank’s Birthday! As an introvert, I love how the Home and Gardens is having an Un-Party. The 7th is also Arbor Day (well actually 7-14 is Arbor Week) in California.

The current exhibit at the Musueum of The Society of California Pioneers (who knew?!) is on James Lick, who was California’s first multimillionaire, and left his fortune to benefit the people of California. One project his money funded was the Observatory on Mount Hamilton that bears his name.

The changing face of news – fascinating video of every New York Times front page since 1852. Also has a link to a movie of the last day of hot lead type at the Times.

The intersection of letterforms and illustrations – words becoming what they mean.

Nansen passports were issued to stateless refugees in the 1920s and 30s.
