Blake’s Sanctum: SEGA MegaZone Preservation Archive NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Blake’s Sanctum: SEGA MegaZone Preservation Archive NEEDS YOUR HELP!. “Being an Australian magazine (presumably with no international distribution) this great old magazine and piece of video game history from the early to mid 90s, arguably the greatest era in retro gaming due to the 16bit console wars and the rise of mainstream PC gaming (Point & click adventures, 1st person shooters, and RTS+TBS strategy games) has sadly disappeared into near obscurity with only a small internet presence and a few mangy old mags occasionally appearing on ebay. There is currently NO COMPLETE DIGITAL RECORD OF THIS MAGAZINE IN EXISTENCE. I want to try and change that…”

UChicago News: Stamp collection provides rare picture of North Korea. “A group of masked dancers, frozen in dramatic poses. A plane descending at an airport, with another trailing in the distance. And a pair of … carnivorous dinosaurs? These disparate images all can be found within the University of Chicago Library’s new collection of North Korean stamps, assembled in a public online database to provide a unique glimpse of the insular country. The stamps, which span from 1962 to 2018, capture a variety of scenes, settings and characters—ranging from explicit propaganda to traditional Korean garb to simple depictions of wildlife.”

Linn’s Stamp News: Linn’s digital archive grows, includes issues back to 2008

Linn’s Stamp News: Linn’s digital archive grows, includes issues back to 2008. “… the real highlight for me is the expansion of the digital archive (found by accessing your digital edition, clicking on the arrow at the top of the issue shown, and then clicking on the archive icon which is beside the magnifying glass). Previously this archive of issues of Linn’s Stamp News was from 2014 to date, now it goes back to 2008. We intend to add to that archive. Because Linn’s was founded in 1928, there are more than 90 years of content for us to eventually include as part of this new digital resource.”

Atlas Obscura: A Newly Digitized Menu Collection Shows Off America’s Lost Railroad Cuisine. “[Ira Silverman] began collecting dining car menus, eventually amassing an archive of 238 menus and related pamphlets. After a long career in transit, he donated the collection to his alma mater’s Transportation Library, which recently digitized it in its entirety. The pages (almost all, impressively, unstained) offer a mouthwatering journey down the rabbit hole of deluxe railroad dining, when well-heeled travelers expected to sit at tables draped in white linen and indulge in outstanding meals plated on china.”
