Curators Nancy Kuhl and Timothy Young were coming across so many treasures in their daily work at Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, that they decided to start a blog and share some of their favorite finds with the world. The blog is called Room 26 Cabinet of Curiosities. It has visitors from all over the world, sometimes thousands a day, coming to take a look at everything from French shadow puppets and illustrated book covers from lesbian pulp novels to love notes from famous writers and rough drafts of well known poems. Coming up, Where We Live, Kuhl and Young take us inside their collection.
