So we're back from France. Spot the visual clue.
But this is actually less about the Eiffel Tower, and more about how I discovered Norman Brosterman's Kindergarten Collection via a Pattern Pulp post. With other collections like Propaganda Kimono, all I can say is: wow. After seeing the Kaleidograph Toy I had to put an order in at Present & Correct. Warning: do not browse if you love stationery—it's wallet-threatening. Anyway, I can't wait for it to arrive. It can play with the miniature baufix blocks I found at Flohmarkthaus (miniature because we had ones just like these, only larger) and my １００のかたち book. They'll be best friends.
More about France a bit later.
