At The Caslon Letter Foundry

posted in Varied others  at 8.40 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France

What about visiting a Type foundry in 1902 ? Amazing pictures found pn this, even more amazing blog Spital fields life.
 
William Caslon set up his type foundry in Chiswell St in 1737, where it operated without any significant change in the methods of production until 1937. These historic photographs taken in 1902, upon the occasion of the opening of the new Caslon factory in Hackney Wick, record both the final decades of the unchanged work of traditional type-founding, as well as the mechanisation of the process that would eventually lead to the industry being swept away by the end of the century.

Tonight I want to share about art, even if it is hard to have the same feeling when you see an image on a screen and have a real piece of art in front of you. Firstly, I would like to share about my friend Olivier Girault, who just launch a new facebook page to show his art.
 
Some of his paintings...

The Butterfly effect - Caitlin Van Horn creations

posted in Photo | Varied others  at 11.52 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France listening Lisa Hannigan
This is this kind of strange moment when you try to figure out why you are here and why you do the things you do. When people ask me what I do, it is hard to explain... I am a creative, that's the word that defines me the best. But I am also a collector and passionate. I do things without reason, I have no plan, except if it makes me feel good or not... My banker ask me for my business plan, I told him "how can I have a business plan, I have no life plan"... I just follow the wind, and adjust my sails... Why I do talk so much about myself tonight ? Does this really interest you ? Or do you just want to see images, inspiration...
 
I like the idea of doing something here, behind my computer, behind my camera, behind my iphone, and sharing the emotion it gaves me. We have access to so much beautifull and inspring things today, we can show the world in so much different and positive ways... That's the feeling I have when I discover Caitlin Van Horn work/world... Here comes some of her combination found on her blog, but I invit you to visit her pinterest : this is an amazing experience.

2 images I found and that speaks to me tonight :
