Timelines are a wonderful way to display information so people can better understand a chain of events in sequence. I thought this timeline of William Shakespeare was interesting because it showed the progression of his life and his work within the same information graphic. http://timelines.com/
Mare is a female Vette, who gives people bad dreams at night by sitting on them in their sleep. She is a common belief in Germanic folklore, and appears in many different shapes. The Scandinavian words for Nightmare, are: Norwegian – Mareritt, Danish – Mareridt, Swedish – Mardröm, which directly translated means Mare-ride, and Mare-dream.
Vince Noir has long since tipped us off that the ruff was making a comeback, and here it is. This time round though there are many new and exciting interpretations of this accessory. Giles Deacon has translated the original shape into a decorative collar using camouflage shapes, instantly bringing this historic shape bang up to date. Gareth Pugh has added drama suing the ruff in his ‘Lady Macbeth’ collection.
