Art of block printing

Today, I’ve seen this video posted by a friend. I love the cinematography a lot! It’s so beautiful that it makes me want to watch some more. I was surprised that the video is actually an american brand‘s sort of advertorial.

This traditional method is well known in India, but we sometimes find those old stamps sold in the touristic markets in Turkey as well, with slightly different local patterns.  My mum uses this technique with pillows and bedding sometime like here and here. What a huge work to carve those stamps manually though! I utterly respect the craftsman.


a quotation

I’ve found this handmade quotation tablet in Emmaus’ dump in winter! It comes from one of my favorite writers of all time (Saint Exupery) and it says:
« Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction. »

Miranda July strikes again!

She did it again! I can tell without even seeing the movie yet. How? well, I’ve made the diagnostic test, and apparently I’ll love THE FUTURE so much that it’s not even funny!
