Katie  A book conservator at the Smithsonian Libraries by day and a fine bookbinder at night. All views expressed here are my own.


Remembering the last National Gallery of Art “once in a lifetime” Vermeer blockbuster in 1995. Back then I worked in the Exhibitions Department of NGA. It was so crowded. The lines around the Thanksgiving holiday were brutal. The show was adversely affected by the January 1996 government shutdown. Let’s hope that isn’t also the case with this show. This all feels like #dejavu #artexhibition #vermeer

The @freersackler “Encountering the Buddha” exhibit was an oasis of calm in an otherwise hectic day. It’s worth a visit. The Tibetan Buddhist shrine alone will transfix you. #buddah

Wearing my PRICE hat to visit the Botany Department to offer storage recommendations for their amazing collections. #collectionscare #collectionstorage

A very quick visit to The Morgan Library. A book lovers dream: the fabulous Library, Jeweled bindings and a Charles Dickens exhibit. #bookbinding #libraries #dickens

Piles of books for tomorrow’s @silibraries Adopt-a-Book event @cooperhewitt . Last minute preparation is in full swing!

One of my favorite magazines, @flow_magazine, features one of my favorite illustrators, Maria Sibylla Merian, this month! Of course, the original 17th century version I have the privilege to see at work is more stunning. #ladyillustrators #merian

Enjoying a homemade Apfelkuchen at the DSW this morning while my kids are in class. It seems like yesterday that I had a Frosch and a Marienkäfer in the Kindergarten. #germanschool #kuchen

Can’t wait for the @silibraries Cooper-Hewitt Adopt-a-Book event on 11/7. I hope this “Leathers of Old Japan” volume is adopted. The decorative leather designs were used for military costumes, clothing and accessories. #Adoptabook #leather #japan #antiquarianbooks

It’s hard to fit Nam June Paik’s “Electronic Superhighway” into one picture! There was an excellent docent led tour of @americanartmuseum as part of the #AIHA Safety and Cultural Heritage Summit.
