The new LaRC bookmark
LaRC has created a new souvenir bookmark featuring artwork in the Carnival Collection. This graceful composite image, which is also used as the collection's online banner, is derived from artist Bror Anders Wikstrom's "the throne of Saturn", a float design from the 1905 Krewe of Proteus parade in New Orleans. The banners and also many of the library’s digitization projects result from a collaboration between the Louisiana Research Collection and the Web Services Department.
We hope you will make a personal visit to the Special Collections Reading Room soon. From your computer, you may browse the large and growing number of digitized images from our Carnival Collection artwork by visiting the freely accessible LOUISiana Digital Library.
