Dewey Decimal Literatur scarf, by Cyberoptix

Literature Scarf, shown in black print on sand regular weight pashmina.

Adapted from an 1876 text by American librarian and educator Melvil Dewey, this early system for library classification would later become the "Dewey Decimal System" we all know and love! 

Black Dewey Decimal for Literature ScarfShown in pale grey on black linen weave pashmina.

Mr. Dewey was also pushing for new ways of simpler, shorthand phonetic spelling to be used in the library sciences, even going so far as to legally change the spelling of his own surname. Though never adopted - you can see examples of his rather creative and quirky spelling ideas here on this scarf.
