Have you ever visited the Public Domain Review? Check out this site to find essays, public collections, and more. Our favorite stories this week were Filling in the Blanks: A Prehistory of the Adult Coloring Craze, and The Dancing Plague of 1518.

If you're a fan of artwork, take a look at Early Experiments with X-Rays (1896) or Steam-Powered Tooth Extraction on an Envelope (1894). If you're wondering what "Public Domain" is, or you want to learn more about copyrights, check out our guide. Still have questions? Ask a Librarian--we'd love to hear from you!
