From the thread, for contrast purposes: Building a 72′ schooner in Viet Nam / colour + sound reminisces about the magical Omnicrom Machine, a heated roller that used special foils to imprint colour blocks on photocopies. It is a dying technology, but the results have a beautiful patina (we also loved c+s’s Morocco Drawings) / fossilised sharks’ teeth were once known as Glossopetrae, or tongue stones (via Fossil Folklore at the National History Museum) / Steven Holl on the role of watercolours in architecture / guilt for a weekend: our parenting regrets vs the touch-screen generation.
