This engraving by Martin Engelbrecht, c.1735-40 depicts a dominotière, or maker of all kinds of colored and printed papers. I was happy to begin the week with her terrific image and a new idea, tacking the first layer in place.  The new lining paper looks like just the kind of pattern she would create.

This is her partner. I think I will pair him with the bold turquoise zebra paper of Jemma Lewis. Martin Engelbrecht created a number of these amusing couples, many represent trades associated with interior design.


This statue of a bronze parfumeur is in Grasse, France outside the Fragonard museum. It was created after a 1697 series of prints by Nicolas de l'armessin dedicated to the trade guilds.  I like them all.
