It’s truly great when public institutions put extensive images of massive collections online. The United States Library of Congress is great and so is the British Library. Add the New York Public Library to that list with the Buttolph collection of menus. “What’s so special about menus?” you might ask. Just check them out and you’ll see the vintage beauty of graphic design (though a large percentage of them are pretty dumpy).
Tax dollars put to the betterment of our society. You don’t see corporations doing things like this. Just about any government has its enormous problems, but our great public institutions is one solid reason to be a government-loving Democrat rather than a corporation-loving Republican.
