Powerful & creative imagery

the food and education made me sad.

I have always been fascinated by these ‘world of 100 people’ things, I remember spending hours thinking through the ones on a poster at church when I was 9 or so. It really, really makes some really important stuff so blindingly clear, in numbers we can understand. And it should, I hope it does, inspire us to act. 

Amazing post.

Happy Thanksgiving, all! To mark the occasion, we’re sharing just a small sample of beautiful, interesting, and sometimes weird Thanksgiving Day postcards from the Library’s collections. Most of these are from the late 1800s and early 1900s, and are in our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection. We particularly like the one featuring two turkeys driving a car (likely out of town). We have plenty more of these cards, if you’re interested. Remember, the Library is closed today for the holiday, but we’ll be back open tomorrow! And we’d be so thankful if you would visit!
