Wonderland



I found this book a few years ago. I still find it inspiring and just fun to look at. Wonderland is a true "art" book. I've even thought about cutting out pages, framing them, and putting this on my wall. But I can't seem to rip it apart.

Remake



I love these handmade journals from Remake.

I've always wanted to…


There's a fun new section at Kate Spade's Behind the Curtain inspired by their fall campaign called "I've always wanted to..." The small vignettes include a hobby guide to learning the activities listed... (from Oh Joy!) I've always wanted to own my own clothing bouqitue, oh, and learn french.

Berry Paper


Graphic designer Cheree Berry has just launched her own stationary line, Cheree Berry Paper. I met Cheree three years ago when I first moved to New York. Then she was working as a art director at Kate Spade. She was willing to offer advice to help me get started in the New York design world. Her book, Hoorah for the Bra: A Perky Peek at the History of the Brassiere is now available on amazon.com.

My Complement…


I am super excited about Kara Walker's new show at the Whitney. My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love is on view October 11 through February 3, 2008.

"If you have any doubt that racism is alive and well and on a continuous shooting spree in the American psyche, why not ask the experts? Clarence Thomas will have an opinion on this. So will Madonna. G. Constantine, the Columbia University Teachers College professor whose office door was defaced with a noose this week. Or ask the African-American artist Kara Walker, whose exquisite, implacable, loose-cannon retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art is about race first and last." —New York Times

Ciao Bella


I just met photographer, Manuella Paganelli. We have a strange connection. We both have lived in each other's hometown. He went to college and worked in Chattanooga, TN. And I studied in Florence, Italy. By the way, he was also friends with Ansel Adams. Can you say, "Che cosa?"

The Animated Life



Check out Jeff Scher's animated film shorts. My favorite is L'Eau Life.

I just found out about a new magazine, Need. It's slogan: "We are not out to save the world, but tell the stories of those who are." I'll update y'all when I get the preview issue.
