Collages & Kings

i have been out of commission today, so just want to share more of my great friend amy’s collages for inspiration’s sake.

these images are all from amy’s collection of cutouts from magazines & some were possibly printed from the internet. unfortunately i can’t list any of the sources – but if you by any chance see something that is yours let me know!

more of amy’s collages. these are old & there are no sources for any of the pics unfortunately (mostly from vogues and other magazines anyway.) click on each image for the hi-res version.

i received the most incredible mail from sally yesterday – she says,

I loved your post about Life photos from Princeton in 1969! I figured if you’re into that kind of photography, you might interested in a resource I found. The University of North Carolina, the school I attended, has apparently archived all of its yearbooks online (well, from the 1890s up to the 1970s) here. I know it’s just another school in the Southern US and may not immediately appeal (although it is the oldest public school in the US! With one of the most beautiful campuses and the BEST basketball team in the country, if I may say so :), but I think the photos and fashion found within are on par with those in the Princeton article.

just like the old days

as a tween / teen in south africa, growing up without the internet / blogs / tumblr meant gaining inspiration from sources you physically had to get your hands on. we used to peruse the paperweight shop and buy outdated issues of foreign magazines by the bag full. and then what would we do with all those mags? we’d cut them up and make collages in our school diaries. hell yes! i never wrote down a single task in my diary at school, it was all full of CK one ads (thanks kate moss). once my parents friends came to visit from america and some allure magazines got passed onto me – with actual perfume samples. my diary smelled great that year.
