Every so often you come across a site that you just love immediately. This is one of those sites for me. It’s called the Public Domain Review and it functions as a compendium for online public domain resources. Even better, each week it presents an article featuring public domain material. From the site’s description:
“The Public Domain Review aspires to become a bounteous gateway into this whopping plenitude that is the public domain. We aim to help our readers explore this rich terrain by surfacing unusual and obscure works, and by offering fresh reflections and unfamiliar angles on material which is more well known.
As well as providing a home for a diverse range of interesting works and curiosities, we also hope to encourage readers to further utilise the various online archives in which these works are originally housed. To this end we have also put together a “Guide to Finding Interesting Public Domain Works Online”.
We also hope to act as a platform for writers and scholars to write about more unusual and obscure works which they might not get a chance to do elsewhere.”
