148. Historic American Sheet Music.

chorus.jpgDuke University currently has an online gallery of historic sheet music covers from 1850’s – 1920’s. Some of the songs' titles are hilarious, but more striking is the craft shown in the typography. More than a few of them are simply amazing and the gallery as a whole is worth slacking off for an afternoon or two. What a resource.

Seriously, Jason, you're like Sir Mortimer Wheeler, (look him up), digging up unbelievable finds.

Thanks, man.

I may find a jewel from time to time, but I definitely do not have the 'stache.
