this year i made my first real art purchase. my friend Amy is the curator of Smith, a gallery in central Cape Town – so i am lucky to have a small glimpse into what’s happening in the contemporary South Africa art world. i would love to expand our art collection, but it’s something that has to come slowly and surely when you are starting out.

Flora

at first glance i couldn’t quite figure out what Flora was – did they make really cool plastic plants? that would be a novel idea. but no, they make really cool posters of plants. if you have a habit of killing plants or if you want to send someone a gift that won’t wither before it reaches them, then Flora is truly a novel idea.

jim tierney

jim tierney designed an absolutely incredible series of book covers for four jules verne novels as part of his senior thesis (he is currently an illustration student at the university of arts in philadelphia). i would snap these up in a second if i spotted them in a book shop.

i have to apologise for my lack of postage, i have been without internet for a few days (what a feeling). i have collected tons of pretty awesome vintage pics lately though. enjoy!
