About meMomma, don't let yer kids grow up to be rockhounds!

About my libraryBooks about minerals & mining history, including the human side & cultural elements of mining, and books, art, poetry, etc. created by miners. Gemstones & jewelry and their history. Field trip guides, rockhound-ism and a bit of geology. Stone as a material, in cultural expressions.
First collection was art & design books; Expressionist architecture; the "Crystal Chain" of Bruno Taut, Wenzel Hablik, Paul Scheerbart et al; Geometric design, polyhedra & paper folding; Sculpture, especially in stone. Have a few books in German, French & Russian. Researching the Russian fabulist Pavel Bazhov, and stone in human culture. I'm often found at play among the databases/webs, other times on beaches or digging up stones...
