A la recherche du temps perdu
I am not sure I have words now that I saw this picture in today's Guardian newspaper - suddenly a million backlog of memories are coming back as I myself was once offered one of those viewmasters (Must be the total eclipse of the sun playing with my mood)... Please follow http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2008/jul/31/viewmaster.design.classic (Sorry the Mac version I am working on does not support links) to view Jonathan Glancey's original piece. While there, I recommend reading all the backlog of his design writings (Anything from Land Rover defender to Band-Aid) a precious reminder that good design actually improves life rather than makes it cumbersome.
