Safe to say we know a thing or two about doing the
diptych dance around here.
What’s is this thing “diptych” you say?
Sounds very complicated and modern
but it’s the complete opposite.
It comes from the from 17th century Greek word
diptychos meaning — folded in two.
Also used for describing a picture or series of pictures painted
or carved on two hinged tablets.
In modern use we use diptych to describe a work
made up of two matching parts.
We do this often here on Laurie B’s review
since it’s not always enough to show you one image
to get the “feel” of it and boy do we want you to get that feel!
The photos can be parts of a whole or just things that “go” together.
You might be thinking…um why do we need to know this?
Well designing has much to do with
putting things that do “go” together…
Hard to believe that cabinet is on sale by the way!
You are exposed to this thing called Diptych daily
and now you’ll have a fancy word to go with it!
