Ned Kahn - Articulated Cloud, Pittsburgh Children’s Museum, Pittsburgh, 2004, PA.

Through collaboration with architects, Koning/Eizenberg, Kahn created a skin - composed of thousands of translucent, white plastic squares - that move in the wind, suggesting a digitized cloud. This “skin” is dramatically affected by the weather and time of day, resulting in ever changing optical phenomena of the skin.

Winnie-the-Pooh and friends premiered in A.A. Milne’s first Winnie-the-Pooh book this week in 1926. But everyone’s favorite Hundred Acre Wood residents lived somewhere else first—the toy box of Milne’s son, (the real) Christopher Robin. The toys, including Christopher Robin’s stuffed teddy bear, were the inspiration behind the famous book series.

A few weeks ago we featured Galileo a Madama Cristina de Lorena, published in 1896 by the Salmin Brothers, which happens to be the smallest book in the world printed with hand-set movable type.  The typeface used is called “flies’ eyes”, and was cut by Antonio Farina in 1834. We have another book in our collection printed with the same type, an 1878 edition of  La Divina Commedia di DanteWhile the Dante is also a miniature book, it is not nearly as small as the Galileo.  Here are some images of both books side by side, so you can compare the type and truly see just what a feat it must have been to hand-set both of these incredible little books.
