#1Buch1Satz - Aktion zur Frankfurter Buchmesse bei Twitter

[…] Über die schlechten Seiten von Twitter, das Wortgeröll, die Flut selbstreferenzieller Nichtigkeiten, die Anhäufung des Infomülls unserer Zeit wurde schon viel geschrieben. […] Seit wir anlässlich der Frankfurter Buchmesse mit dem Hashtag 1Buch1Satz unsere Leser eingeladen haben, den Inhalt Hunderter Buchseiten in nur einer Phrase zu konzentrieren.
Die Herausforderung haben außergewöhnlich viele Menschen angenommen […].

"Bibliothek im Exil"

"Bis vor kurzem war die Bibliothek von Timbuktu das Zuhause einzigartiger Handschriften. Heute ist sie verwaist: Vor dem Einfall der Islamisten 2012 wurden die Schriften in 2000 Kisten gerettet und lagern jetzt an einem geheimen Ort."

@blantonmuseum: Dog with a Biscuit and a Chinese Cup by Giovanna Garzoni, 1640s
Giovanna Garzoni (1600-1670) was among the first women painters to specialize in still life. She was especially praised for her renderings of plants and animals and was a favorite of the Medici, who called on her to decorate their various villas. She was sought after throughout her long career and left her estate to the Accademia di San Luca in Rome on the stipulation that they build a tomb for her in their church.

Hidden Book
This unusual shot I took some time ago when I visited the Abbey of Rolduc, in the south of the Netherlands. While my finger carefully lifts the loose cover of a sixteenth-century printed book, you are shown the inside of the binding, where the backs of the quires are held together by a horizontal strip of parchment. What’s so special about this scene is the fact that this strip was cut from a handwritten medieval manuscript - old-fashioned and therefore ideal for cutting up and recycling, binders thought. And so this early-fifteenth-century handwritten Dutch Bible found itself being sliced and diced. “I loved once,” the exposed text reads with a flair of irony and tragedy (Ic hebbe gheminnet). My finger allowed the strip to peek at the world again for the first time in centuries: that thought alone makes research of these fragments a thrilling activity.
Pic (my own): Rolduc Abbey, printed book in the attic library. More on fragments in this blog post.
