Core students, faculty, and alumni are invited to contribute to “Marginalia.” This will be a series of images showing how readers relate to their books via underscoring, scribbles, and other forms of mark-up. This first entry in the series comes from Prof. Sassan Tabatabai’s personal copy of King Lear. Click on the image for a larger version.
Each image features a scan of an actual book, complete with margin notes and markings, and has a few of those margin notes called out in the sidebar. If you’d like to allow a page from one of your books to appear in the series, simply scan it (400 dpi, please) and send the resulting image as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are on campus, just drop by the office and we’ll make the scan while you wait!
