Total non-sequitar (how is that any different than usual, Scott) but BibliOdyssey, a trove of “Visual Materia Obscura” and Eclectic Bookart, took me back to my undergraduate days.

As part of a Milton class my professor took us to Western’s rare book room to see some illustrated editions there. For the next 3 years it became my secret study haven, both because it was amazingly quiet (nobody else seemed to know about it), it had these great big oak tables, and contained these freaky books. I would ask the librarian to bring various works with weird and fanciful illustrations and open it on one of the pages, then work on my own stuff, looking at the illustration as a break. They either never caught on or else just tolerated me, but I had a perfect study space and loads of mind bending fun too boot. – SWL
