Word of the Week: Marginalia

Marginalia  \mahr-juh-NAY-lee-uh\
1: marginal notes or embellishments (as in a book)
2: nonessential items

By the overwhelmingly detailed marginalia, we could tell that the owner of this sheet music clearly was not very focused on the song enclosed, but rather in the lively depictions of day-to-day life in a 1950s, park-hopping, diner-dancing, singing-in-the-rain Venice.
