Tried to shave off my wooly winter stockings and accidentally shaved off a line of skin. Ew. Basically I gave up after that. 

Also camera angles that make it look like I don’t have ankles. Awesome.

John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893) was a Victorian-era painter, notable for his moonlit scenes and landscapes.

these paintings are incredible because we’ve all seen eerie clouds like this, but they’re virtually impossible to photograph the same way we see them. So this guy painted them. This is why painting and art is important.

"

Archives grow and develop over time. They are the creation, not of a single person, but of a long succession of clerks, secretaries, archivists and curators who have reshaped and reorganised them.

The archives held at the British Library have often been rearranged in the course of cataloguing. Sometimes this is inevitable. If an archive arrives in a suitcase, two cardboard boxes and a carrier bag, what do you do? You have to create some sort of order out of chaos. But by imposing ‘order’ on the archive we also impose meaning and interpretation.

.Record-keeping was a deeply political act: decisions about what was kept and what was destroyed can tell us a great deal about changing notions of legitimacy and political participation.
