Earlier this year, UWDCC acquired a new contraption that has since made our jobs of digitally capturing and formatting materials immensely easier.

With the newest additions, UWDCC builds on the work that began in 2006 when Ibero-American Studies Bibliographer Paloma Celis Carbajal met with members of Eloísa Cartonera, the first cartonera publisher.

Theatre to Cinema

The centerpiece of this collection is a reprint of Theatre to Cinema: Stage Pictorialism and the Early Feature Film, by Ben Brewster and Lea Jacobs first published by Oxford University Press in 1997. While previous accounts of the relationship between cinema and theatre have tended to assume that early filmmakers had to break away from the stage in order to establish a specific aesthetic for the new medium, Theatre to Cinema argues that the cinema turned to the pictorial, spectacular tradition of the theatre in the 1910s to establish a model for feature filmmaking.

Here we have one of Wisconsin’s premier hiking destinations, Devil’s Lake State Park located in the city of Baraboo. Devil’s Lake is the largest and most visited park in Wisconsin, and its thousands of acres and many quartzite bluffs overlook a 360 acre lake.

  • New to the Collections this month, among other things, are several editions of the Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine. The magazine changed its name from the Wisconsin Conservation Bulletin to its current title in 1977. While the format and graphic design of the publication have evolved over the decades, its content remains largely unchanged, with a focus on outdoor recreation, habitat management, nature study and environmental issues. Currently, volume 1 No. 1 through volume 8 No. 6, which is shown in the image here, is available within the Ecology and Natural Resources collection. #Wildlife #Nature #WisconsinWildlife #Wisconsin #Deer #whatsnewwednesday  #NaturalResources #DNR #Wildlifeart #WildlifeMagazine (ID:EcoNatRes.WINRMv8n6.i0001)
