time flies...

...whether you are having fun or not! wherever did January go? belated Happy New year all the same. Hope you all had a good holiday and a good start of the year. The holidays seem so far now but I have to share my little discovery while was away... I've fallen in love with this beauty

In fact you could say the love affair is with the whole shop but I'd be happy to start small. For those of you in Spain if you are in the South (Jerez) and need any items for your old typewriter or even an old typewriter this is the place to go -Arroyo in Calle Porvera. Sadly I came out only with a new ribbon for my Olivetti lettera 32.

On a different topic, a friend (thanks Nick!) pointed me in the direction of this intricate and delicate work by Japanese artist Yuken Teruya who makes beatiful cut-out shapes from anything he gets his hands on, pizza boxes, toilet rolls, paper bags. Here follows a sample for your enjoyment...

How amazing does that typewriter shop look - Very jealous that you got a wee look. :P

I love how delicate those little trees are out of something considered mundane.

P.S- Thanks for the card it was lovely, I need to chin you about some letterpress work soon.... ;) Do you do student EL' Broke O discount??

Yuken Teruya's work is so extrordinary! esp loving "the New York Times". Paper artists/engineers are so... extraordinary! so... magic!!
