The History of Men’s Raiment: Spring & Summer, 1912

The final chapter of our journey through The History of Men’s Raiment is Spring & Summer, 1912. It was the current collection when the chapbook was published, and it’s not far from looking like a current collection for a designer today.

From the pamphlet:

The whole theory of dressing to-day has been reorganized and is accomplished upon a far less involved basis. Dress has almost become a uniform but we gauge excellence of clothes, or beauty of clothes, or appearance of clothes, by a different scale: They must keep their shape and cut and wear well - stand the brunt of Twentieth Century service.

What a wonderful collection of stuff.

1800 Year Old 20 Sided Die (via Imgur)
Nothing good must have come from someone rolling a Natural 1 nearly 2000 years ago.

I wonder what their RPG’s were like?
Up next: DM’s handbook in cuneiform on clay tablets.
(Yes, I know I’m mixing and matching wildly divergent cultures and time periods; stand back I’m a trained anthropologist)
On a more serious note, does anyone recognize the writing system?

Branding the Presidents of the United States by Meg Jannott

As part of her 44 Days of Design project, Meg decided the Presidents of the United States of America were seriously lacking in some clever branding, designing logos and appropriate slogans for each. It’s still ongoing, so stay up to date and keep a lookout for your favorite Prez (William Howard Taft, baby, come on…!) at her tumblr: brandingtheuspresidents

Lately I’ve been working again on my story about the circus fortune teller and her ghost knife-throwing sister and this is so perfect for helping me visualize things. Yay! (Almost 20,000 words into this novel, holy cow!)
