This month on emuse

This month on emuse has been Mackintosh Month, a month of posts about the Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

The month started off with an introduction to Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a drawing and photos of the aftermath of the fire at Glasgow School of Art, and a discussion of Japanese symbolism in his work.

Later there were some drawings and photos of the Willow Tearoom, and a visit to a grave designed by Mackintosh.

There have been plenty of creative projects here this month inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh:
Self portraits

I also showed how to make a retro pincushion, like the one I made in primary school, and reviewed a book, The Fir Tree, with illustrations that took me back to that same era.
