malformalady:

Welink is a dog collar that is custom made for your dog that features a silhouette of your dog that un-clips from the dog tag for you to wear as a necklace or use as a charm on a bracelet or any piece of jewelry. The frame of the dog tag is what gets customized with your dogs name along with your contact information to be use if they get lost, and the silhouette is what you take to use however you like. If you put them together, the silhouette fits into the dog tag perfectly. The Welink dog tag silhouette necklace is currently in funding phase on Kickstarter so go reserve yours now.

I wish I’d had this when I had my Griffin.  Would be such a sweet memento.  Miss my boyo so much.

Animated Lanterns

Two lanterns hang above a series of tables and stools in this detailed, mid-18th-century drawing showcasing the interior of a Chinese merchant’s home. 

The image, from a book of sketches by architect Sir William Chambers, is markedly different from most contemporary European depictions of Chinese architecture, which were usually fanciful scenes used to illustrate travel literature. 

See more drawings by Chambers free from Institut national d'histoire d l'art here.


This week’s pick from the Getty Research Portal, a one-stop shop for public domain art history books.

usfspecialcollections:

Rossiter W. Raymond (1840-1918) was a mining engineer, and he also served in the American Civil War as well as Commissioner of Mines and, later, a professor of ore deposits and State Commissioner of Electrical Subways in New York; in his non-mining hours, Raymond wrote essays (including a description of what is now Yellowstone National Park), hymns and poems. His poetry is predominantly religious and not particularly reflective of the rather whimsical binding featured on this 1875 edition of his poems.
