This is again about reading carefully. In the Instructions for completing the notebooks I found that the History of Styles Notebook can be presented in digital version on CD or memory stick to save printing. These days I would think it might also be online presentation. This is awesome! That is why I love KLC – they keep improving all their materials, the web site, and the ways to do the projects too. I will definitely go digital, I hate wasting paper. If you doing the course as I do – one set per year (I know, every time I promise myself to do the next one earlier), do not forget to keep your eye on the latest materials.
By the way, I know my mark for the 5th set, it is A-, but I did not get it back yet, I will have it by the end of this week and publish it here with tutor’s comments as soon as I can.
Just thinking… This would be great idea for history of styles book. When I just started mine I had something like this in my mind… Richard Chadwick interior sketches.
Looking for information for my 4th module I found an interesting blog about staircases. In “About” it says: “This blog will primarily focus on the background of staircases, bearing in mind details on Victorian, Edwardian, Elizabethan, Georgian and Modern staircases. Experts, which will provide locations of structural staircases and possible sites to visit them. Samples from trade show, distributors or retailers, this section will also be demonstrating how the materials are being used. Construction of staircases, looking in-depth into technical guides, detailing, integration with other materials and building regulation issues.”
Sieadsi.co.uk - high quality reproductions of iconic designers seats and accessories. Short stories and descriptions of items, pictures are good enough to illustrate the History of Style book.
I am going to spend there the next Saturday 6 of August. Checked the web site of museum and got very exited, it is sooo huge! I am looking forward to get tired walking through and to fall at the end, exhausted and stuffed with information and impressions!
Today I have been to Hinton Ampner, the lovely period house in Hampshire. It was my first visit to this kind of property. It was great to see the real interior where the real people used to live, previously I have seen historical interiors only in movies or pictures in magazines and books. I would not reproduce history of this place here, it is possible to found from other sources, I just want to say that personal presence in the period house is much better then pictures. What is not really a new idea…
