Old timey tabbed browsing

Next time you’re at the Library, make sure you check out our new revolving book holder, hand crafted just for us by sometime web log commenter delta99, who is a good friend to the Library, a very talented wood worker, and just basically an all around great guy.

The piece was expertly copied from one designed by Thomas Jefferson, and built, delta99 suspects, by his slave John Hemmings, so that T. J. could quickly refer to up to  five different books at a time.  The original is on display at Monticello.

The officially sanctioned version is available for purchase online, but I’m pretty sure ours is much, much nicer.
