A DIAMOND RING
Guides say the prospective groom should spend two months' salary on an engagement ring. For some, that will mean a tasteful yet inexpensive band; for others, a bauble that's big, bold, and pricey. Either way, engaged couples can experiment with different looks without spending a penny at Design Your Own Engagement Ring (adiamondisforever.com/dtoer). Then compare it with similar designs or find a local jeweler who can sell you the ring you want.

5-14-01 Star Wars: Designer Edition

and the evil Galactic Empire has grown too fond of industrial finishes. Dull
grey is the 'in' color." So begins an epic journey to the farthest reaches
of time, space, and fashion sense. From the new-Beetle-inspired AT-AT Walker
to Jabba the Hut's Ghery-designed palace, you'll be amazed at how today's
designers have managed to spruce up the galaxy. Say goodbye to dull earth-tone

conglomerate gets down with paper folding. They'll help you make things with

Is a Print?
This nifty Museum of Modern Art exhibit describes the fine art of printmaking, an ink-on-paper format, in which images are created using various techniques of indirect transfer. Printmaking is centuries old -- the first woodcuts appeared in ninth-century China. In the Renaissance, artists like Breughel and Rembrandt created etchings using acid to incise line drawings on a metal plate. Lithography (crayon or ink on stone) flourished in the 19th and 20th centuries, as in the work of Toulouse-Lautrec. Screenprinting (serigraphy) came into its own with the poster and pop art of the 20th century. Think Warhol, Marilyn, Campbell Soup. Enjoy the galleries.
