Have a look at this arrangement of wonderful things: this cloud is composed of old, tabi patterns which were cut from recycled, thick paper. They’re really, really fantastic.
There are over 30 pieces. Judging from the various sizes of the each of the patterns, it seems they are size graded, but in no particular order—certainly not in the jumble in which they were found.
Each piece is fascinating. They probably date to the 1930s or so.I just find this an amazingly and visually fascinating group. Having the patterns arranged on my wall has given me such pleasure: what a treat it is to look up from my work and to see this in the distance.
