DEWEY PRINT LITERATURE NECKTIE
- Book tie printed with the 800 series of Dewey Classification. Delight your favourite librarian, book lover, author, writer or poet with this perfect literary gift! 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! Mr. Dewey was also pushing for new ways of simpler, shorthand spelling to be used in the library sciences, even legally changing the spelling of his own surname. Though never adopted - you can see examples of his rather creative and quirky spelling ideas here on this necktie.
