In September of 2012, we launched a series of Flickr sets to highlight the wonderful visual content of our blog posts. These images document the wide variety of field books we catalog here at the Field Book Project, and were kindly digitized for us by the Smithsonian Institution Archives Digital Services. Being on Flickr gives us a chance to share content with a wider audience and users the chance to interact with images more directly (e.g. tagging and commenting) than is possible in the blog format.
This is the third installment in the series, available to through the Smithsonian’s Flickr Commons stream. The set includes 27 images that accompanied blog posts from 2011. These come from scrapbooks, journals, photographs, drawings, and logbooks, and document field work completed around the world, over the course of two centuries.
So take a look, comment, follow the url in the caption to the related blog post to learn more. We hope you enjoy the images as much as we do.
