The Calvert Journal has a great blog post full of photos from the 80s and 90s underground rock scene in what was then Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), Russia.
Books as works of art in and of themselves. Remarkable. Simon Brown makes books look… desirable!
Many thanks to my friend Al Clark, whose group is a goldmine for oddities, especially when it comes to music. We may be miles apart politically, but this gorgeous photo set, like music, brings us into agreement.
Many thanks to mirrior, who posted this photo today. I love libraries. My best memory comes from them, spending time with my parents or grandparents, learning about the world, letting my imagination run wild, while also keeping it grounded with history, philosophy and religion. It was a kindred soul, Jorge Luis Borges, who once quipped, “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” Perhaps he’s right.
