Welcome! Thanks for stopping by.  This blog and website are about art, books, travel, and the daily amazing.

Stop by often and sit a spell! Uh...you might have to clear the chair first.

I have posted this in entirety over at Daily Amazing and invite you go on over and watch two interesting videos of German artist Peter Dahmen. He creates collapsible paper structures and pop-ups out of books and boxes that are mouth-watering for their movement and intricacies. What I particularly enjoyed was listening to how they came to be - from a real-life problem he had to solve - how simple his designs start in sketch and marker form ..."ugly"...how he solves one problem at a time and doesn't try to do more than that, and how the admirer of his finished work should also know that there were 20 before it that didn't work but to persevere. 

 How the beautiful pieces begin...simple ugly sketches and models.
