Emma Willard's Maps of Time

quote [ In the 21st-century, infographics are everywhere. In the classroom, in the newspaper, in government reports, these concise visual representations of complicated information have changed the way we imagine our world. Susan Schulten explores the pioneering work of Emma Willard (1787?1870), a leading feminist educator whose innovative maps of time laid the groundwork for the charts and graphics of today. ]

The Curious Case of the Notebook from State Lunatic Asylum No.3

quote [ Drawings, found in the hundreds, every page hand-bound, every artwork a labour of love. Why was it found in a dumpster in Springfield, Missouri, by a teenager who pulled it out in 1970? For decades, the only clue to its origins was a water mark: ?Missouri State ?Lunatic Asylum? No. 3.? ]

This is what goes on in the mind of a lunatic

quote [ Enjoy this 1943 comic book featuring a psychedelic mushroom chomping Santa Claus. It's sort of a bonkers take-off on Alice in Wonderland but with added Santa. ]
