Pictures of analog Zettel and Zettelkästen
Stumbled upon cool pictures in this German newspaper article (which you don't even have to bother translating )
There's no way to link to the photos directly, but the series of pictures is just below the "fold":
I love how Arno Schmidt's notes are wrapped in paper and enumerated in what appears to be colored pencils. You can see that he pulled his Zettel from whichever order they were in and thus organized them in a supposedly linear/sequential fashion, most likely to assemble the manuscript of "Seelandschaft mit Pocahontas". It's a great example of how a Zettelkasten produces what I call movable text fragments, likening this way to work with notes to the invention of movable type by Gutenberg.
