When we discovered Atlantis, and all the branches of knowledge that accompanied the discovery, a cry of anguish was heard from librarians all over the world. The Dewey Decimal System was full. How could we classify all this new knowledge?
The workaround agreed upon was to allow two more values for each digit, “*” and “#”, as well as the customary “0” to “9”.
It became known as the Screwy Dewey Duodecimal System.
This collection holds 1,000 drawings, the outcome of 40 years of root system excavations in Europe, mainly in Austria. The drawings, their analysis and description were done by Univ. Prof. Dr. Erwin Lichtenegger (1928-2004) and Univ. Prof. Dr. Lore Kutschera (1917-2008), leader of Pflanzensoziologisches Institut, Klagenfurt, (now in Bad Goisern, Austria).
Cars are too quick, I have decided. As soon as you leave a place BAM you’re at the next place! With no time to process where you’ve been or where you’ll go next. Not advisable. Slow travel is best travel 🚶🏻♀️
