Fine Books & Collections: Discover the UK’s Historic Books

From a month ago and I just found it. Fine Books & Collections: Discover the UK’s Historic Books . “Discover Historic Books was put together during UK lockdown this year by the team behind the Unlocking The Archive project, a collaboration between the University of East Anglia (UEA), the National Trust’s Blickling Estate property, and Norfolk Library and Information Service. Visitors to the website can explore ancient books such as Daniel Heinsius’ 1629 In Praise of the Ass (Laus asini) and A History of Lapland by John Scheffer (1674) using interactive hotpoints to explain the text and all the nuts and bolts of the physical books, from Renaissance typefaces to yapp edges and printers’ marks.”
