It’s Friday! At friggin’ last.

Especially this week: we made it. (I hope most of you made it. This was a terrible week. 😟 )

Let’s see some new links…

Judith Hope: Puppets

Judith Hope: Puppets

Ms. Hope makes some incredibly intricate, really detailed puppets, including some weird choices like (among others) bactriophage. (?!?!) Her Instagram is also worth a follow.

Just amazing. And Bananas!!

The London Time Machine

The London Time Machine

A great little map mashup using “The Morgan Map of 1682” and current satellite photographs to show (a) how accurate that very old map was and (b) how the terrain has changed in 338 years.

Vatican Library Online

Vatican Library Online

A really vast, really carefully curated archive of a lot of material in the physical Vatican Library.

It’s a bit daunting to use – among other things, you should probably understand Latin – but wwwwwow the history in this collection.

It’s making the rounds, and rightly so.

NGSnake

NGSnake

It’s the original “Snake” game, but way, way faster.

Super hard.

I hope your weekend is calm, peaceful, happy, etc.

Happy Friday.
