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.
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.
