I love Bibliodyssey! I never know what I am going to find there, but it’s invariably interesting and always always edifying. This time around it’s these 15th century drawings of weaponry. Even though I come from a long line of pacifists, that won’t keep me from appreciating Martin Merz’s draftsmanship in these weird, dangerous and quite unusual images. For a little bit more history go here. And click on the various links to learn even more.
I was on the lookout for a couple of basting brushes to replace my very ratty greasy ones. I thought about getting silicone brushes, but they don’t really soak up the liquids the way I want. And something about silicone and food coming together has never really sat that well with me. The other day, while wandering around Dean & Deluca trying to pass 15 minutes before a meeting, I came upon these lovely specimens. Something about the combination of the bristles, the cerulean blue plastic and the wooden handles make me quite happy. I also have a thing for brushes. More to come.
Never be without a stash of these.
I don’t know of anyone who has seen Jenny Odell’s work and not been completely engrossed and amazed. I can barely get enough of her art. The top image is of landfills, the middle one is of waste and salt ponds, and the last one is of nuclear power plant cooling towers. Check out more here.
No real significance other than I like random numbers. And hand-painted ones are the best.
