This one is a special favorite for me, being born in the UK. This blog post details an interesting placement for one student, Imaging Queen Elizabeth I‘s Prayer Book and some great insight into learning and using the GIGAmacro system.
Historic Scotland have a custom built GIGAmacro system with a large scanning table to accommodate very large historic documents and objects.
How about scanning books created by one of history’s greatest figures? I once held the action report for HMS Shannon and the USS Chesapeake (during which the phrase ‘Don’t give up the ship’ was uttered by the ill fated Captain James Lawrence) and the feeling of holding an original, over 200 years old, is incredible. It must be even more amazing to work with an artifact over 450 years old!
Graham has worked as a business and marketing leader in high technology, aviation and not-for-profit large and small organizations. He jumped out of corporate life in 2007 to ‘have more fun’ and does so helping small companies with strategy, business, and marketing as well as traveling and taking pictures.
He loves working with smart groups of people to solve challenging problems.
Gadgets of all sorts (especially anything to do with aviation and flight) and photography have fascinated since early childhood. He is also an accomplished photographer who exhibits regularly and a former competition aerobatic pilot.
Graham is a transplanted Brit (hence the humo(u)r) who has lived and worked in CA since 1996.
He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
