Please disregard the phrase above. I don't know how to get rid of it. This very fine gallery has been neglected for over a year because I have moved on to other things. If you have any interest in reviving it, running it, turning it into a group endeavor, or in any way carrying on the project I started please let me know. You can change it however you like to make it your own, but I would hope that the gallery up to now would remain and be added to. If no one steps up, I will just leave it sitting here for the foreseeable future. WHAT IS THE LOST BOOK CLUB AND MUSEUM? It is a gallery of fragments, both text and image artifacts, connected b

NEW CONTEST: THE BOOK OF THE FUTURE In honor of our museum's 300th acquisition, and leading up to our first anniversary, I am announcing a new contest, open to all, on the theme THE BOOK OF THE FUTURE. This can be interpreted any way you like. It could be a mysterious book that comes to us from the future, or a book of speculations and predictions about the future of books and literacy, in particular, or the future in general, or any other way you care to look at it. This time I would like to encourage text entries, fiction or non-fiction, as well as visual art. Prizes will include a fine print of your choice from my Lost Book images, and

Happy Birthday!

Sorry to have abandoned this club. My 20th century loner brain became dangerously overloaded by 21st century social media some time ago, so I took a long break. For the moment I have only returned to let you know where I can be found, for those who might want to find me. I have just started a blog at [link] in order to have a public place to work on my latest obsessions.
I promise to be far more responsive to the few who visit me there - and you might find it interesting. Wishing all the best for all of you.

OK, so I have been watching the group for a while now and you're on my friends list. How do I choose to be a donor and what's next?

Happy Birthday!
