Research at the Reynolds Library


I've been doing a lot of research for two big book arts projects - they are both large content books - with lots of hand drawn illustrations in the style of early naturalist and anatomical books (16th-18th century).  The most recent book has lots of silverpoint, watercolor and graphite drawing with thread drawing etc.  I'll post pictures soon.  I've been lucky enough to do research at some great research collections - including the Morgan Pierpoint in New York and our own Reynolds Historical Collections at UAB which has an amazing collection of anatomical and other books - Peggy Balch at UAB has really helped me out by finding all sorts of info on spiders, webs, early anatomy, suture styles, and bandage constructions etc.
