Art Fry photographed by David Friedman Fuchsia by Mervyn Peake

I’ve always loved the way a paperclip’s appearance in Mervyn Peake’s “Gormenghast” breaks the ‘fantasy world’, halts it from solidifying into a Tolkienesque bygone mythology, jolting us into an alternative parallel world.

Stationary in literature, the typewriter in Burrough‘s Naked Lunch, Douglas Coupland Office Supplies Ltd.

These are just a few of my favourite things.

And before it all gets too metatextual this is just a way to introduce this delightful clip made by photographer David Friedman, who filmed the Post It note inventor Art Fry watching a video of a Post It note performance. Recursion. And so on.

(and an excuse to post one of of Mr Peake’s beautiful illustrations)
