antiquities....

Tonight I was looking through some old images, and came across some from a wonderful display of japanese art tools, old books, and old statues that were taken waaaaay back in 2009 ;-) through a store window really early in the morning. I remember that I meant to go back when the store was open and get some shots from inside but never did...

These resided inside my computer all this time because they didn't quite seem capable of standing on their own - but when I saw them tonight I thought they might work in the collage style I'm having so much fun with these days. Sort of a quasi windowpane effect.

The designers in this store were definitely ahead of their time - look at any Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, or Anthropologie catalog today, and you'll see stacks of old books, oftentimes turned backwards just like this.
