About this site
Who is running the show?
Hi, I'm Chris.
What's this all about?
Page & Bone is a site dedicated to the extroidanary objects and images contained in libraries, archives and museums around the world. I dig through digital archives and share my favorite finds to educate, inspire and delight.
I am not an expert or historian, simply an enthusiast hoping to attract more attention to great cultural institutions and the fun stuff in their collections.
What's with the name?
When I worked in libraries, I loved to hang out in the special collections room where they were digitizing rare books. As part of the process, the team would occasionally use a "bone folder" to prepare an item. As a peculiar object, its simultaneous connection to cultural preservation and ultimate mortality inspired the name for this site.
