Common Place Journal - Sunday 2-4-24
  • Common Place Journal - Sunday 2-4-24



    The Common Place Journal is a place to compile knowledge, usually by writing information into books. They have been kept from antiquity and were kept particularly during the Renaissance and in the nineteenth century.  Such books or journals are essentially scrapbooks filled with items of every kind: notes, stickers, recipes, quotes, letters, poems, tables of weights and measures and proverbs.  Commonplaces are used by writers, readers, students and scholars as an aid for remembering useful concepts or facts.  Each one is unique to it's creator's particular interests.
