Image by atelier-ying Prototype model atelier ying, nyc It might be foolhardy to design cameras for fictional figures in books. Please refer to the previous uploaded drawing for the design of this camera. I am still looking for some sand or ash to put into the plastic viewfinder. When I do I will update this photo. As for the digitalization of this camera, that will take quite a long while as I'm simply inundated with other things these months. My favorite Agatha Christie stories are not from a top 10 mystery bestseller list or selected because of great literary quality; they are simply highly personal choices : The Postern of Fate, 4:50 from Paddington, Why didn't they ask Evans? and the Labors of Hercules. The order and method that Hercule Poirot craved in all things, even crimes, was missing from his creator, Agatha Christie, although her genius found sufficient order within her plenitude of untidy notebooks. I'm not criticizing her at all. To me, a suitcase full of notebooks with no particular order to them is a treasure trove, especially to an archivist. I got my idea years ago from a picture of the prose writer Annie Dillard who sufficed with just such a suitcase and a typewriter. How romantic! I put forward an atavistic Greek fragment from my notebook that inspired an equally dubious parti of the proposed design from the last uploaded drawing. This is oddly reminiscent of the nomenclature Christie used in her notebooks for intricate plotting: 1.pirate chest : archivist 2. Miss Lemon... letter holder,calendar :club mbr 3. Andrea Palladio... Vitruvius... A Roman adaptation of a Greek myth "Four books of architecture" "architeto" Design, text and drawing are copyright 2013 by David Lo.
