Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Visions of the Arctic from back when it was the last frontier. Plates from Bernard O’Reilly’s work “Greenland, the adjacent seas, and the North-west Passage to the Pacific Ocean, illustrated in a voyage to Davis’s strait, during the summer of 1817” with the illustrations made from drawings by the author. Published in 1818 in London. In the collections of the State Library of Alaska and the Library of the Marine Biological Laboratory and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
On a voyage to see how much mileage I can get from the creative ability and eye for images that my family thought was useless. On line art curator, fiction writer and now blogger. Historian's daughter. Follow me . . .even I have no idea where I'm going next.
