Eames Three Serigraph.

I couldn’t weave a web around the Eames Three Serigraph any better…

This elephantine “3” will afford its owner endless conversational fodder as you weave your dutifully nodding dinner party guests through the story of Charles and Ray Eames’ obsession with circus imagery and how the three on which this digit is based hung in the graphics room at the Eames Office and became the impetus for a set of numeral fonts offered by House Industries and that David Dodde lovingly hand pulled this poster and patiently let it air dry to achieve the unique flatness characteristic of air dried screen printing inks can I make you an espresso you look a little drowsy. Then enjoy the poignant silence as your guests consider the cultural breadth of your knowledge or decide if they should feign an urgent call from the babysitter so they can leave before dessert.
