The Flat Blue Devil came to visit Conservation to see what we were working on. He got into a bit of trouble when he investigated the book press, but we managed to release him with no harm done.
We showed him the famous banana-book in the exhibit case, and he got to see the Blaeu Atlas that Erin is working on. Thanks for visiting us FBD!
Here lies the death mask of Duke University President William Preston Few (1910-1940).
His head is in the lab having recently been on exhibit. It’s existing enclosure wasn’t providing adequate protection for the delicate plaster, so Jennifer is building an enclosure for it.
It’s creeping us all out.
