When I was a young 'un, I imagined that my guardian angel might be hurt if I just referred to him this way: "Hey, you! Please watch over me!" I also surmised that since I didn't know whether or not my angel was a male or female, perhaps I could divine that he/they divided up the duties between them. So being the odd, egalitarian youngster that I was, I gave a name to both a male (Josh) and female (Sarah - I think it was because the name reminded me of "seraph") angel to cover all the bases. Of course, admiring as I was of long dresses (and I still am) I would have loved Sarah to look like this. I also imagined that although it would be wonderful to meet these guardians, I wouldn't want to stay in heaven, wherever that was. So here in the set, I imagine Sarah telling me it's not quite yet my time. 

Finally, I have been able to use the marvelous wings that were created by the amazingly gifted Tabitha Sue, so thanks to you, Tabitha, for the gorgeous clockwork wings! See her beautiful stuff here: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/profile?id=1502174

I have always disliked pictures of angels who looked as though they weren't having any fun. The goofy little cherubs likewise, cute as they might have seemed to the Victorians and others, were never my style. If I go to heaven, I want to have fun. Hence the Frank Sinatra music and the swing. I wouldn't want to be rewarded by being given a harp and told to look serious or saintly all the time. And I don't think heaven would really be like that, even if it were physical. I imagine it will be something a human being could never imagine, and that nothing else would be so good.

    hivemodern.com
    Design Alexander Girard®, 1961. Screen-printed poster. Made by Herman Miller® Herman Miller's first foray into retail, the midtown Manhattan Textiles & Objects shop was born out of Alexander Girard's commercial interests and personal passions. With a hand-selected stock of international folk art, bolts of fabric, custom occasional furniture, and small items he commissioned and designed, the Textiles & Objects shop offered the public a chance to step into Girard's rarified world. In creating the Textiles & Objects Poster, Girard did as much to expand the boundaries of graphic design as he did to promote this innovative endeavor. The Textiles & Objects Poster is evidence that, in Girard's hands, advertising can rise to the level of art. Among the many invitations, signs, product tags, and other graphical elements Alexander Girard designed to promote the midtown Manhattan Textiles & Objects shop he launched with Herman Miller in 1961, this faithful screen-printed re-edition of the 26x20 inch poster is available framed or unframed. The framed version includes an elegant three-quarter-inch white wood frame with clear acrylic. Mounting hardware included. Unframed: 20" w | 26" h. framed: 21" w | 27" h.
