Space Science

Since starting my job at Pinhead I have become a total science geek. It is actually amazing to see the connections that arise between the art world & the science world. Anyway, in case you didn't know, 2009 is the International Year of Astronomy. Actually, 2009 is a big "science year" between the anniversary of Darwin's 200th birthday, celebrating 150 years since the publication of "On the Origin of Species" and the celebration of 400 years since Galileo first used a telescope to study the heavens. These posters give a retro vibe to celebrating science - they are amazing. Each one is now available for purchase right here. (Also: if you're interested in buying 3 or more, just contact artists Simon Page through the site and he'll give you a 25% off Christmas discount!)

Ooooo, delurking to say thank you. These are great, and just about perfect for the astronomer in our house. Also, we're painting/rewiring our living room. Would you (plural) have any suggestions for curtains/rugs etc? Will be posting before and construction pictures shortly. Happy Solstice.

Curtain & Rug suggestions? So many - where to begin. Depends on your space...maybe we can do cross posting for suggestions? Touch base.
