The Mitchell Library in Australia turned 100 and to celebrate, it launched a celebration of fantastic graphics on its website. My favorite is its collaboration with design agency Frost* to visualize their own alphabet. Each letter and number is gorgeous on its own, but just click a little further and you'll open up a treasure chest of intriguing archival images and information. I could really spend hours and hours on this site and still not lose interest. I highly recommend you check it out.

Thank you to intrepid Australian librarian, Ingrid, for the heads up about this site. On a side note, this little blog of mine is completely worth every second I spend on it for the sole fact that it's connected me with people across the globe who I otherwise never would have known.
