New Blog on the Block

I've added a link to, a brand-new book blog by Laura (a self-described "twenty-something book nerd" who's headed to the University of London in the fall for the Book History masters program there). Her inaugural post discusses this week's lunar eclipse and offers some links to "the moon in antiquarian books." One of those is about Galileo's drawings of an eclipse in his 1610 Sidereus Nuncius (more images here), which were exactly what came to mind when I was watching the eclipse myself.

I'll look forward to more posts.
