I’m pretty much in love with art that incorporates words. I don’t know why. I just love it. I’m also sort of into origins (as illustrated by this post). And while I’ve liked this poster for some time now, after watching this video last night (thanks to Young House Love‘s post on twitter!) and seeing the words in their historical context, I have a whole new appreciation for it. The video is only a few minutes long and much of the photography is beautiful. Such a fascinating story!
