  2. I have posted about Tatsuya Tanaka's tiny world he creates using household items but he continues to produce incredible photographs. I could not imagine what is required to produce each image. 
  3. Tom Geismar and Ivan Chermayeff were responsible for some of the most iconic logos of this past century.  Until this piece, I had never heard of them even though I recognize their work.
