Distraction: Toys of the Avant-Garde

Seeing as my invisible jet was in the very visible repair shop most of last year, I missed the Toys of the Avant-Garde exhibition at Museo Picasso Malaga (insert boo-hoo face here).  Still, that didn't stop me from getting my sweaty wandering hands on the beautifully illustrated book/catalog for the exhibition.  This book has been sitting on my desk for the last week and whenever I need an eye-candy break I open to any page and ogle the incredible images.  I find these photos of a late 1800's scrap book especially inspiring.... I hope you agree.

Hello WE:
Yes, the 1800s scrapbook is a visual treat and the exhibition sounds to have been most intriguing.

By chance, our current post is of our own latest toy!

Dear Jane and Lance: I would trade my scrapbook for your new fantastic toy any day!

You have some nice artifacts, W.E. - I'm going to call back regularly to see what else you gate your hands on (and in the hopes of seeing a video of you tap-dancing).
