While interning at the American Library in Paris a few summers ago, I came across this issue of Library Journal from 1950. This is sweet, beautiful proof that we’ve been worried about new media making reading obsolete for oh…ever.

What lovely font we once used! This is a wonderful welcome-back-from-vacation Tumblr present from Darien / Erin Shea.

Only difference? You don’t have to click through a slideshow or 10-part article to get the answer.
