Transportation – Coming Attractions
Hand-crafters Morgan Motor company will be unveiling another sports car in August at Pebble Beach. So far all we have is a overly processed photo of a silhouette. The EvaGT. Might want.
Pretty girls and motorcycles. In this case a lovely Swedish builder and the quest to build the fastest electric bike.
Speaking of building things. One of the sweetest tools you can have in any shop that works with metal is a Beverly Shear. On the Most Wanted list of every silversmith and another case of the real deal being worth the real dollars.
Art, Images, and Design
Turn of the (last) century design can feel utterly modern even 100 years later. This serving basket by German silversmith Josef Hoffman is a fine example
Seems I’m on a cut the material to make the design roll so, die-cut butterfly silhouettes. Black and orange. Very luxe chocolate packaging.
Photographs of Places
From the Big Picture. Argentina celebrates her bicentennial. Color, motion, pageantry, memory. (Yes it’s a little late but dang – fine images.)
Dry glass plate negatives. An old fashioned, out of date, archaic medium for capturing photographs. And that might be a crying shame. I dare you to click ‘View full size’ below this photograph of the Westinghouse Air-Brake plant from 1905. Be prepared to scroll across your multi-monitor setup to see all the detail. Dear god, you can count the bricks.
