Indian Motocycle Logo #3

I'm calling this one the Glass Indian. Having worked twice before on these weekly bulletins from the Indian factory in Springfield, Massachusetts, I'm not any more thrilled with the paper this time around than I was the first time. It chips easily, and it really is poor paper. BUT. I use what I can get when I can get it.

This is also another piece of paper that was gifted to me by my brother-in-law, Tom Benson. I think about his fabulous Indian Museum - in his Great Room - every time I work on something like this.


  1. Beautiful! I remember a photograph from Chuck's road trip of your brother's garage. The photo made us want to fix up our garage...well, we only got as far as insulating and cleaning up a bit.....

  2. Hi Dave, I'm back! Back in blog land that is. Nice to see you still going strong on the blog too. Some paper just isn't made to last. I've found that out a lot being a librarian for so long...but even the crumbly stuff still holds appeal for us paper fetishists and bibliophiles.

  3. That is fabulous!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Long time since we've been in contact. You had asked if I used Google images, and yes, but I came up empty handed. Your mention of the spider looking like a pumpkin prompted me to Google pumpkin spider, and now the mystery is solved! Pumpkin spiders are quite common apparently (and harmless), though I've never seen one in these parts.

    I hope you're doing well. :-)

  4. Dave, that "great room" is even more appealing with all the early winter snow outside the windows!
