Antiques and Collectibles: Fit for a finger - Thimble Collection

Antiques and Collectibles: Fit for a finger - Post Bulletin:
"No one seems to know who actually invented the thimble, but it is believed they were introduced around 7000 BC, at the time when people started using cloth and needles."
As a thimble collector, don’t forget about other related items, like the original Monopoly thimble game piece, which is no longer in production.

Design Work Life » Daniel Zender: Hitchcock Poster Series:
Does the name need to change from Psycho to the Birds?
It's cool to see all the new ideas for book jackets and movie posters. Doing projects like this is a great way to create a portfolio. And the work of Hitchcock is ideal because the master knows how to tie all the small details together to make something much greater than the sum of it's parts. For instance, Most Hitchcock movies have only a few words in the title. That's marketing genius. We will forever think of Hitchcock when we hear the word Psycho or Vertigo, Suspicion or Saboteur.

Graphic designer Saul Bass created most of the movie posters for Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese, a well as dozens of logos for major corporations that are recognized internationally.  He also directed his own sci-fi feature film called "Phase IV" using macro photography to reveal the life of ants on the offensive against humans. The movie was screened recently with the Long-Lost Original Ending (slashfilm.com). See this in-depth article about Saul Bass: The Evolution of an Artist (noupe.com)

An article about Why Don't Hit Superhero Movies Lead to More Comics Sales? (comicsalliance.com) is worth reading for the list of editors and bloggers who weigh in on the problem. The answer? Someone walks out of a superhero movie and into a comic book shop, but there's no continuity from the themes in the movie and a whole lifetime of comic book characters and cross-overs. There's superheroes everywhere, but no comics that tie-in to the movie and lead you to the addiction of collecting. Comics Alliance has a new New Editor-in-Chief, Joe Hughes.
