Attempting to give a damn

One of the interweb’s more “serious” design bloggers has emailed me with the following put down…

“To identify yourself as a design blogger is a bit grandiose. As much content as you regurgitate from others’ sites, a more apt description would be a digital scrap-booker at best.”

Just for the record, since it has never been my intention for my blog to serve any higher purpose than that of a digital scrap-book, then “digital scrap-booker” is a moniker I can live with.

Now THAT is what I call a suitcase!

Handmade in Boxbourne, Hertfordshire by master craftsmen, from Vulcan Fibre — a material invented in 1895 and constructed of a number of layers of special paper coated with resin — Globe-Trotter suitcases have stood the test of time. Cloth lined with a frame made of ash, they also feature locks made by Cheney, a long-established British locksmith. Apparently the cases were originally tested for strength in Hamburg’s Zoological Gardens where a 1 tonne elephant stood on one with its full weight; no damage was done.
