If you get really motivated over the weekend, you can follow Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey’s lead, and start growing your own photographic image on a patch of grass.

According to Creative Review, “The artists essentially use grass as a form of photographic paper, projecting a black-and-white negative image onto a patch of grass as it grows in a dark room, and using the natural photosensitive properties of the grass to reproduce photographs.”

Of course, if you’re gonna go to all that trouble, you’ll want to make sure that you’re using the perfect image. Check out this article on portraiture … and the (equally good) this great portrait of a Blurb book, in the shot with some of our favorite extraordinary gentlemen. This book still qualifies as one of our favorites here at the Blurb office.

Have a great weekend!
