Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #145

Start your Monday off right:

  1. Hand block printing is an ancient method abandoned for more commercial methods. However, the Block Shop produces beautiful prints and fabrics in India using the historical techniques.  
  2. These cucumber noodles with sesame dressing feel like the perfect meal for the hot humid August days we are currently experiencing. 
  3. James Moreton captures those mysterious foggy roads found in Northern Ireland. The grainy film used only heightens the feeling that the roads will take you to unknown places. 
  4. Animator, Steve Kirby, teamed up with illustrator, Andrew Fox, to bring to life Fox's quirky calligraphy animals in this playful video. 
  5. “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” — George Bernard Shaw
  6. If you need another Instagram account to follow, I highly recommend the All Format Film Photography Collective. Top notch work all around. 
  7. Aristotle Roufanis's series, Alone Together, captures the light from apartments while the surrounding rooms are black.  
  8. A fascinating conversation on living a meaningful life between Ed Latimore who is a professional heavyweight boxer, physics major, and philosopher and Shane Parrish who runs the Farnam Street blog.
