Japanese Ex-libris Stamps
Topic: Art
Japanese Ex-libris Stamps -- "Ex-libris ownership stamps were imprinted in books to clearly indicate to which collection these literary works belonged. They were first seen in China from where they were brought to Japan. While we can trace Japan's oldest ex-libris ownership stamps back to the Nara period (710 to 794), we cannot pinpoint when nor how they were introduced to Japan." (via the cartoonist April 2005)

The Rorschach Inkblots
Topic: Art
The Rorschach test -- This site shows black and white outlines of the Rorschach inkblots. "Most people have heard of the Rorschach test (pronounced 'ror-shock'), but few have ever seen a real Rorschach inkblot. The blots are kept secret. When you see an inkblot in a popular article on the test (as in the Encyclopaedia Britannica entry on the Rorschach test), it's a fake: it's an inkblot, but not one of the inkblots. There are only ten Rorschach inkblots." (via marchdesign)

Hermann Rorschach (1884-1922) was a Swiss psychiatrist and the son of a painter. He took a deep interest in psychoanalysis, and during the 1910's he published several psychoanalytic articles. He experimented with the interpretation of ink blots, as did Leonardo da Vinci and Justinus Kerner. In 1921 he published Psychodiagnostik, these 10 inkblots and a guide to analysis of how people interpreted them. This work is now regarded a classic of psychiatry and also, art. See the inkblots in color at the Hermann Rorschach Artist Page

You can buy the "secret" inkblots at, or search for the Rorschach color plates on eBay auctions
