We’re taking inspiration from #MuseumFromHome and @BodCons and sharing what our conservation team have been up to from home. Our studio may be empty but we’re still busy! Keep reading this thread to see what we've been doing.

We've just published another of our #Japanese design books on the @universalviewer: 蝶千種 (Chō senshu, '1000 Butterflies') by Kamisaka Sekka.
Why not have a go at a butterfly #sudoku based on images from the book?

If you come across any references to Indonesian things in medieval texts from anywhere in Afro-Eurasia, could you let me know? By 'medieval' here I mean pre-1500. Doesn't matter how well known or how obscure - just tweet at/message me!

the suffix -y is not only common in English, but also extremely productive - we can add it to practically anything to make an adjective (e.g. Twittery)

-y comes from Old English -iġ and is a relative of Latin -icus, which we also find in many English words (like 'poetic')

The Kelmscott Chaucer is looked after by our friends @BLprintheritage (do give them a follow).
It was published by William Morris in 1896, with illustrations designed by Edward Burne-Jones, who described it as 'like a pocket cathedral'.

Keep 2 metres apart when you go outside. That’s:

🔴 1 bed
🔴 2 benches
🔴 3 fridges
🔴 4 chairs

Today there was a knock on my door and I found a couple of 12-year old kids outside offering to wash cars for a bit of cash and because they are bored. I had a little think and debated on balance they were probably not going to lure me somewhere and steal my car or mug me 1/
