Pulchritudinous penmanship

“1860 Warsaw 1? by Zeva Oelbaum, 2006

We posted a lovely gallery today at Nextbook.org: yeshiva students’ scribblings on their textbooks’ endpapers, photographed by Zeva Oelbaum: Biblical Marginalia. Click the “View Gallery” link under Eve M. Kahn’s byline to see the slideshow.

I guess they didn’t have that rule that one of my schools did, which if I recall correctly was that if you marked up your school-issued textbook, you had to pay for a new one.
