  • belowthesurface.amsterdam

    An online exhibition of the archaeological finds from the construction of the metro line under the city of Amsterdam. You can check all the finds from the last Ice Age to 2005. That's alone super interesting, but you can also check the displays inside the Rokin metro station. On top of that, they published the catalog as an oversized, beautifully designed book. Jerzy Gawronski [ed.]. Stuff – Catalogue Archaeological Finds Amsterdam’s North/South Metro Line. Van Zoetendaal / De Harmonie, 2018.

  • materialarchiv

    This online collection/exhibition is made in a cooperation of ten Swiss universities/institutes. You can read information about different materials, from banana fibers to various aluminum. But what I've found most interesting here is the extensive information about pigments, different paper types, and bookbinding materials. (The page is in German.)
