Forages is a collection of things that inspire me in life and work.

Bright Red Film

I’ve been obsessing over Colorplan papers from G. F. Smith for a while. The Colorplan site is a color lover’s Candyland with a gold mine of tools for pairing and selecting paper. You can arrange, pair and sort colors in the browser; watch videos demonstrating the thickness of each weight; and download a color swatch library plus images of their embossed textures.

When I found the Bright Red film it nearly put me over the edge—a documentary of paper making disguised as a Scandinavian crime serial that could have been blessed by the hands of Ridley Scott. Amazing.
