The Story of a Silkworm

This post now resides on my other site 50 Watts:


  1. Beautiful. I especially like how he hasn't cutesy-fied the silkworm.

  2. Your post made me remember Maud and Miska Petersham's book The Story Book of Silk. There's a cover image here:

    They did a whole series of similar titles, although the only other one I've seen is The Story Book of Wool. Full-color throughout. Maybe I'll post some images if I get a chance.

  3. good reading your interview at ephemera. you have the best blog on internet - a constant inspiration. thanks

  4. Cy, I didn't scan the "transformation" stage when the silkworm is basically dreaming in abstract shapes. Pretty damn cool.

    Chris, I'll check out that series. Thanks.

    Joel, I saw your interview there too. Thanks for the kind words in your interview and here!
