Card Catalog Balls

I love card catalogs. I just dig the yellowing, typewriter-written, old paper smell vibe of the whole thing. It's something we've had to let go of in the digital age and, while I applaud progress, I do miss my papery friends at the library. Over at the CMufalli blog, Chris is fashioning these great lampshades from the old card catalog at University of the Arts as part of an industrial design project. A clever reuse if ever there was one, and a nice nod to the past as we move into the evermore technical future. link
