Some librarians are often mistaken for witches. Others are not so much “mistaken” as witches as they are “recognised” as witches.
An oldie but goodie.
Library and literary miscellany from your pals at Library Journal.
We are continuing Halloween-related Caturdays this October (see last week’s creepy kitty) with this photo of a flying feline on the back of a witch’s broomstick. This postcard from 1910 is in our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection, and was originally sent to “Miss. A. Anderson” in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Happy Caturday!
Sorry, I just like witches, everyone.
We thought it would be simply purrrrfect to share some of the Library’s hair-raising Halloween-related cat images on Caturdays throughout the month of October. So here’s the first one - an 1894 print from The Picture Magazine of a witch and her black cat. It’s currently in our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection. Happy October, and happy Caturday!
The LJ tumblr loves old pictures of witches. Especially in October.
My tenure here hasn’t been long, but I am pretty sure this is the most striking author photo I’m likely to see for a while. A review of Christian Day’s Witches’ Book of the Dead is forthcoming from LJ.
