Spoonflower Exhibit Model

 I was asked to dream up an exhibit design for a course I am in and make a scale model (1/2" = 1'-0") for it. I chose create a design for the type of booth Spoonflower might have at a trade show to promote a new (fictional) cotton upholstery fabric.
 The fluid space frames resemble bolts of fabric being unrolled, and there are segments along them for a variety of designs from the Spoonflower Marketplace to be displayed. 
The ones shown are from my shop and ottomanbrim's shop. The wallpaper design at the back is by joanmclemore and the one on the sides by alicia_vance.  
 Above the seating area at the back of the exhibit there is a hanging chair made of the new upholstery fabric. The hanging banners are all the different types of fabric Spoonflower offers.

 On the back wall there is a shelf of bolts of fabric and wallpaper samples, and a table to view and cut them on. There are Spoonflower Handbooks for distribution as well.

The Spoonflower Handbook is Here

 I got this little gem in the mail the other day! Several months ago I sent Spoonflower a small contribution in response to a submission call for the book.
 It is signed by Stephen Fraser, co-founder of Spoonflower.
 I'm especially excited about pages 56-57!
 Published on those pages is a little insight on my design process, specifically colour selection.
My Belle Boulevard design accompanies the text.

Vintage Cat Bookmark: 1919 Emerson Book

I bought this book at a book fair in the spring. It is from 1919, was written by Emerson, and has an interesting green leather cover with Art Nouveau art. My mom is currently reading it and it appears she is the first person in all these years to do so--she has to slice the pages apart with a letter opener! 
That said, someone at least picked it up in the past and slipped a bookmark inside, cause as she was reading it this little guy fell out from the pages! Oh the delights of vintage books!
