[BKARTS] An Amazing Lincoln Memorial Notebook on Display-



"After news of President Lincoln's assassination reached New York, in all
arteries and capillaries of the city, shopkeepers designed makeshift
shrines to the martyred president. An anonymous diarist walked for miles,
drawing sketches of as many storefronts as he could (evidence suggests,
but does not confirm, that the diarist was a man). Through his relentless
activity this nameless reporter made the news a bit more comprehensible.
Here are selections from the diary entries."

Here's the full story and images of the pages.

It always amazes me when people think of such interesting things to do....I
recall seeing one huge artists book that contained the coin change the maker
had received each day for various transactions over the period of a year,
with notes and receipts re each transaction....
