The only work of del Toro’s that I’ve seen is The Book of Life, which is a gorgeously animated film.
I visited the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg. I highly recommend it for anyone who has the opportunity to visit this museum.
Below is a selection of photos I took.
–Frislanda, a fictional island that had been included in maps for over a century
-The politically charged ‘beaver maps’
Below are the images I took.
We were shown where their onsite collection was housed. The collection contained images, films, books, scripts, soundtracks, etc.The FRL has one of the largest English Canadian film collections in the world. Their collection includes the archives of various figures and groups from Canadian film.
They also have exhibits on display.
In their reading room for patrons, they presented a display of their materials to us. Below* is a sample of what they showed us. The highlight for me was discovering a cookbook inspired by Gone with the Wind.
*These pictures were taken and posted with permission.
The M&DC had different kinds of globes, including ones about the solar system. The raised-relief ones appealed to me, which represented the elevation of the world by having its surface shaped to reflect the heights (i.e. it wasn’t flat or smooth). With my images, you can see how high the Himalayas are compared to India. It’s incredible to see how far the mountains go. Next, you can see the deserts and mountains in Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
There is a diverse range of atlases. If you search your library catalog with “Atlas of,” you will find that many topics are covered. Just as an example, in the photo below, the titles are about the historical atlases of Britain, a satellite atlas of Croatia and the surface temperatures of various European countries.
