Reply Grace Bonney says: May 28, 2013 at 12:21 pm heather just this month :) grace Reply Arielle says: May 28, 2013 at 11:52 am I’ve loved reading these, thanks for all of the near history. I don’t know if anyone has said this already, my apologies if so, just wanted to let you know that the text has been consistently hard to read due to the small size. I thought maybe it was just mobile reading but I tried on my computer too and it’s the same (using an iPhone 5 and 27″ iMac). Thanks again for the cool history! Reply Heather says: May 28, 2013 at 1:18 pm I’ve been saving the images and I’m going to print them out and hang them as a group. Pretty excited about it.

Reply Janet Husband says: November 28, 2013 at 10:16 am Lapis lazuli is not artificial. Reply Maxwell Tielman says: November 28, 2013 at 11:41 pm Janet— Lapis Lazuli isn’t artificial, but Egyptian blue is—hence its original name, translated as “artificial lapis lazuli.” Reply LEAVE A COMMENT Cancel reply Comment Design*Sponge reserves the right to restrict comments that do not contribute constructively to the conversation at hand, contain profanity, personal attacks, hate speech or seek to promote a personal or unrelated business.
