A Brief Tour of the Digital Delights of the Folger Shakespeare Library


But luckily for you, one does not need to go to the Folger Library in DC to see these pieces of history; they live online as well. And, in some cases, online they are even more enchanting.

Take, for example, the Wenceslaus Hollar map. In person, it’s lovely, but online, it’s amazing. Go ahead and click, and then zoom, zoom, zoom way in and appreciate its details. You can’t see this in person, at least not without a magnifying glass. —The Atlantic.
