Weekends and bicycles!

Harini Chandrasekar

"Take your pleasure seriously." — Charles Eames. Its been a great start to the week with a friend moving to town and bringing me my own first real bicycle. These last few days have been filled with a mild bicycle obsession as well the discovery of a fun new technique of making stamps. It's no real wonder that this post is filled with bikes, stamps and love!:)

Having been trained as a textile designer, stamps remind me of the block printing techniques in India and the immense potential and beauty of these primitive tools that almost seem to display scant regard to mechanization. Wikipedia describes the woodblock printing practiced in India as the earliest, simplest and slowest of all methods of printing. However, it is also capable of producing otherwise unattainable beauty.

Needless to add, an entirely worthwhile endeavor!
