Can you see me??!?!??!Hello! I used to work at the Internet Archive on the Open Library project. I also made a group on Flickr just in case you enjoy taking photos of books. There's a natty way to join Flickr photos with Open Library books, you see.

Now I own my own business called Good, Form & Spectacle, which specialises in digital and product design for cultural heritage endeavours.
