Scenes of University lifeNostalgic note cards on sale soon

By Rebecca Arrington

Scenes of University life around the turn of the century grace the covers of note cards that will be on sale at the U.Va. Bookstore in early September. Twelve photographs, including the infamous 1895 Rotunda fire, were chosen from the library's Special Collections department for the inaugural note card set.

The black-and-white, 5-by-7-inch cards were designed by library publicist Melissa Norris and produced by U.Va.'s Printing Services. The 12-card set will sell for $12.95.

"This partnership gives the library an opportunity to make some of the riches found in our collections available to the public," said Ken Jensen, director of the library's Communications and Publications department.

"The note card project is one of a series of partnerships that have recently been forged at the University," bookstore director Jonathan Kates said. "It combines the strengths and resources of otherwise separate departments to produce unique University-related merchandise for our community. The project underscores the value of these partnerships; working together has broadened our thinking and our creativity."

The Lawn provides the background for the above shot, circa 1917, from the collection of Charlottesville photographer Rufus W. Holsinger.
