Wait! Come back!

Today, NDQ celebrates the analog by pointing you to The Card Catalog, a book just published by the Library of Congress.

Here’s a great short review piece by Constance Grady in Vox:

“The Library of Congress just released a book on the history of the card catalog, and while I can physically feel you clicking away from this article even as I type, I am here to tell you that The Card Catalog is actually weirdly fascinating.”

We editors at NDQ agree and have just ordered the book, happy to embrace our nerd pride. And while we wait for the book to arrive, here are a few pictures of this glorious intellectual art form:
