Bats, from the Hungarian guide book Kisemlösök (Rodents) published in Budapest in 1985.
Public Collectors is founded upon the concern that there are many types of cultural artifacts that public libraries, museums and other institutions and archives either do not collect or do not make freely accessible. Public Collectors asks individuals that have had the luxury to amass, organize, and inventory these materials to help reverse this lack by making their collections public.
This page consists of sample findings and excerpts. It is also an account of the contents of my home and digital files from my camera. If you have suggestions, have a collection you want to share, or are in Chicago and would like to see something in person, please contact me. This blog is intended as a casual, more personal supplement to the main Public Collectors website.

This Hungarian guide book, Kisemlösök (Rodents), was published in Budapest in 1985. It’s one of several similar handy illustrated books that I picked up on my recent trip. More exciting drawings of bats to follow (and maybe some rats and squirrels later on?).
