Stations/Colliders - Jacob van Loon
The editor at Never Lazy mentioned how much my work has developed since earlier this year — bringing the realization that I don’t review my work much after each piece is finished. Change doesn’t appear the same to me, especially when I’m working in series.
I was looking through the Digital Collections of the Mertz Library for something appropriate with which to celebrate Thanksgiving. Oddly, what kept popping up was seed and plant catalogs. So I peeked inside to see what they were up to.
Turns out, one of the selling points for a number of vegetables, fruits, and flowers has always been that you can grow a portion of your Thanksgiving dinner. Within these catalogs you will find promises of homegrown strawberries, tomatoes, squash, chrysanthemums, and more that will be ready for your feast day.
And while the descriptions of the plants are fun, it is the covers that always captivate me. So enjoy these beautiful and silly old graphics, and if you get tired of trying to string along conversation with your aunt visiting from Topeka, take a dive into our archives and enjoy a little time travel. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your imagination will wander! Happy Thanksgiving! ~Ann (AR) & Matt (MN)
