i’ve decided to start doing a daily painting post. i don’t think it warrants an explanation, it’s just that i like paintings a lot.

wines of the cape

i discovered this rad little gem hidden in the depths of a bookcase at my parent’s house (as you do). it was printed in paarl in 1959. the entire thing is illustrated by roman waher, who i unfortunately can’t find any more information on (sometimes the internet doesn’t have all the answers, who knew?). after a bit of digging around all i could i could find out was that he contributed to a number of other africana books.

if you’re a fan of mid century illustration, be sure to check out this flickr group as well as the mid-century modernist.

valentine

i don’t want to be a party pooper but i’ve always been kind of *shrugs soulders* about valentines day. that being said, if i was planning on sending something to someone, it would be one of these cute cards from rifle paper co and perhaps a bunch of hydrangeas.  oh wait, that’s what i would want someone to send to me (hint).
