Curiosity Cabinet

OK, I know I've been on hiatus for a while with this whole blogging thing. Blame it on the baby, but TODAY (no promises for tomorrow) I am going to steal a few minutes and tell you how much I like this "Curiosity Cabinet" print I found by Tosuto Desu. I love the simple colors and orderly shelf layout but mostly I love the theme. I was in London a few years ago at the British Museum and I went crazy over the Enlightenment Room. The room covers the exploration of knowledge from the 1600s-1800s and a lot of the exhibits show weird little curiosities displayed in tiny, repetitive cases, much like this print. But I'll save those details for tomorrow!
