Another of those "do you remember...?" posts

I am slowly clearing out drawers in my art room.
Remember these?
That rug really tied the room together, did it not?

No.  And I'm truly glad.   :D

These, and Letraset, used to make me very unhappy.

I remember letterset but not these.

When you dig grave will you make it shallow so that I can feel the rain?

I think I have some big sheets of Rubylith I can mail you so you can toss it out in about another 20 years. ;)

I'll have to do some digging, I think most of the "really old stuff" went to the trash when we had to move 5 years ago. Come to think of it, we may still have some french curves in the art room... We used those marks Andy, and plenty of them, plus a few thousand yards of Rubylith for our election sign days.

We still have one of those, but it hasn't been used in 20 years probably. I found some Rapidograph refills...
