some things behind glass...

items recently seen in glass cases in the small museum at mission san juan batista.

an old bible with faded color ribbon place holders, a book with some kind of number/alphabet coding, a book with gosh darned beautiful graphic design, an object one could seemingly hold in one's hand while singing and praying, and one of the largest roller organ cobbs i've ever seen (an absolutely beautiful object to behold!).

the museum, with its peeling walls and dusty contents reminded me a lot of the joseph cornell show (also seen over the weekend), a stunner, which was impossible to get one's mind around in one visit...
