The Fault in our Stars / John Green; Memos: The Vogue Years / Diana Vreeland; The Kinfolk Table / Nathan Williams.
New Year, new pages. An electic mix of a YA bestseller, notes from one of the best editors there ever was, and the most beautiful and meaningful cookbook as of late.
TransAtlantic / Colum McCann; Z – A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald / Therese Anne Fowler;
The Engagements / J. Courtney Sullivan.
New stories to escape into, each of a different kind, for the start of autumn…and probably for my 12-hour flight next week, too.
Things We Love / Kate Spade New York; The Attachments / Rainbow Rowell; Lean In / Sheryl Sandberg; The Betrayal / Helen Dunmore
A bit of a pick ‘n mix lately, as life has also been a bit…picky. Something lighthearted (don’t underestimate YA lit), something to chew on (working girls, unite), something serious (so haunting), and something pretty (that makes me oh-so-happy).
Saveur, dish (New Zealand), Vogue Australia, bon appétit.
How tempting (and amazing) is that Saveur cover?! Food shoot research continues, with the irresistible Sofia added to the mix.
Architectural Record, Vanity Fair, Conde Nast Traveler, Kinfolk Vol. 7.
Lazy, hazy days of summer means the amassing of magazines to linger over while sipping my new favourite cooler of fresh calamansi topped with ice-cold sparkling water.
Elle Decoration UK; Dwell Asia; Case Da Abitare; Marie Claire Maison.
Can you tell what my mind’s been on lately? International editions abound for perspective inspiration, including one of the reoccurring favourites.
It’s like magic! And is perfect for me since there never seems to be enough space on my desk.
The Extend bookshelf by yet another clever Japanese design firm YOY allows you to make extra space for those all-important tomes that you can’t leave out of reach on the top shelf.
So completely sold!
Lucky Peach Issue 5; Vanity Fair; Self China.
(Note: This month’s Self is a set of four – yes, FOUR – magazines to commemorate their 6th anniversary. That’s just the sleeve above. Very impressive. Thank you, advertisers.)
