Drawing for a Staple Magazine and Feed Means for Stapling Machines 3/14/1944

Henry Ruskin’s 1944 patent for the staple magazine and feed is still familiar to people today. Ruskin attempted to construct a simple and compact stapler. In his application, he claims that his design feeds staples very simply, accurately, and effectively.  (via DocsTeach » )

Also patented on March 14 - the Cotton Gin - an invention which arguably had far more impact on the course of American history.  But we ran that back in October when the patent application was first submitted, so thought we’d opt for something more lighthearted today.

So — let the Office Space quotes commence…

Christian Tagliavini

O fotógrafo e designer Christian Tagliavini vive recriando o passado de modo inovador, as séries 1503 e Dame di Cartone são a prova disso. Em 1503, ele fez uma releitura de pinturas clássicas do século 16 usando manipulações digitais. Já na série “Mulheres de papelão” ele registra mulheres com modelitos que vão do século 17 ao 20 - todos feitos de papelão.
Exagerados e lúdicos, os detalhes dos trabalhos são verdadeiras obras de arte.
