In the past, I have portrayed scenes of scientific discovery drawn from the history of the natural sciences and described actual studies based on the field notes and theses. In this set, I have created two characters, based on the professional friendship of two library colleagues, to explore the fictional research lives of two leporid paleontologists: Maggie Panizzi and Lady Abby Nicholson. I hope you enjoy their company as much as I have, and will look forward to more adventures from these museum basement dwellers.
