GREEK IMAGES OF WRITING.

Andrew Wiesner has assembled a collection of links to “Images of Orality and Literacy in Greek Iconography of the Fifth, Fourth and Third Centuries BCE.” Some amazing stuff there, like the Boy seated writing. (Via wood s lot.)
Incidentally, wood s lot also reminds me that today is the birthday of the great Thelonious Monk, and WKCR is playing his music all day. Click the “live broadcast” link at the bottom, choose your stream, and enjoy.
