A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:Its loveliness increases; it will neverPass into nothingness; but still will keepA bower quiet for us, and a sleepFull of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
John Keats, Endymion 1818
Doublure in Levant Morocco, with inlay and tooling. By Robert Riviere and Son, Sometime after 1880.
A doublure is a bookbinding term, from the French doublure, that describes an ornamental or decorative lining on the inside of a book. This one is made with an unidentified “quality leather,” probably goat skin, that is particularly soft or pliable and ideal for bookbinding work.
Update: Image is from Holme, Charles. 1914. The art of the book. London: “The Studio” Ltd. p.95. Our Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum Library has a 1920 book on an exhibit by Riviere & Son at the Leipzig Exhibition in 1914, also full of wonderfully elaborate bookbindings.

Spectrum of Time by Peter Erskine is a permanent rainbow sundial calendar installation. Hour and month lines painted on the walls and floor of the 40’ X 40’ X 40’ industrial museum space mark the hours, summer and winter solstices, and the spring and autumn equinoxes with astronomical accuracy. A 30’ X 30’ cross of solar spectrum light powered by the rotation and tilt of the earth tells the time and date. On cloudy days a laser pointer driven by a solar tracking program fills in for the rainbow.
