Hal Taylor Storytime Rocking Chair

This is brilliant. Anyone who reads to their children or grandchildren knows how hard it can be to get situated so everyone can see the pictures and no one feels left out. To be able to do so in a rocking chair is absolute storytime bliss.

As you can see from the first photo (especially if you click on it and view it large), Hal Taylor's craftsmanship is as fine as it gets. But here's what I like best about this design--and others that do the same. Taylor takes the concept of "rocking chair" and draws outside the lines. He doesn't let a pre-defined notion of what a rocking chair is constrain him. Where others see "rocking chair," he sees possibilities. Zen mind, beginner's mind.

via smart stuff.
