“A forest has been planted in Norway, which will supply paper for a special anthology of books to be printed in one hundred years time. Between now and then, one writer every year will contribute a text, with the writings held in trust, unpublished, until 2114.
The texts will be held in a specially designed room in the New Public Deichmanske Library, Oslo. Tending the forest and ensuring its preservation for the 100-year duration of the artwork finds a conceptual counterpoint in the invitation extended to each writer: to conceive and produce a work in the hopes of finding a receptive reader in an unknown future.”

Margaret Atwood will be the first writer to contribute to The Future Library.

Have you ever wanted tour own stag beetle but had no wish to remove it from its environs? Do you have a spare pickle jar and a wish to make a craft object from paper and glue? Then this activity kit has been tailored for you!

you will need scissors, adhesive paste/glue, a bit of masking tape and a printing mechanism. You will also need a standard sized pickle jar or the equivalent.

Cut out the two parts of the beetle:

-fold the left portion of the ‘elytra’ (bottom body) over the other.

-place some glue on the upper section and adhere the two so that the small ‘sensory organs’ peek out from under the head.

-the stem of section B (c1) gets adhered to the small base (c2) (picture 1).

-place a small piece of tape on the bottom of C2 and adhere it to the inside of the jar lid (picture 1)

The collar for the ‘bell jar’ is section E

-it might require some extension depending on the dimensions of the jar but I recommend printing the pattern at maximum size to minimize that.

-glue the tabs to the lower bottom base seen in (picture 2)

-place the jar lid inside the collar and base (picture 3)

-place the jar over the top and screw down into the lid! 

-You now have a museum exhibit quality stag beetle display!

9 Female Pirates You Should Know

When you think of pirates, you’re likely picturing bearded buccaneers or peg-legged scalawags with names like Blackbeard, Barbarossa, and Calico Jack. While most pirates were men, there were women in these ranks of raiders who were just as merciless, notorious, and feared.
