We will become silhouettes

Silhouette is a fun word to write. The title of this post is also a great song by the Postal Service. I don’t blog about music enough. You should check out the Postal Service. They’re quite literally one part Death Cab for Cutie, one part awesome.  

The etymological source of their name is quite awesome too. Here’s the story from wikipedia:

“The band’s name was chosen due to the way in which they produced its songs. Tamborello wrote and performed instrumental tracks and then sent the DATs to Gibbard, who edited the song as he saw fit (adding his vocals along the way), sending them back to Tamborello via theUnited States Postal Service.”

Here’s the video clip.

They also famously signed a distribution deal with the Postal Service during a legal challenge over their name. 

That’s a very long, and tangential introduction to the real purpose of this post – a great collection of silhouette art. It’s clever, and it’s the kind of thing I’d like to hang on my wall. You can buy them as framed prints. Check out my favourites:
