I discovered ME magazine at McNally Robinson last weekend. This little journal is beautifully designed with ornamental flourishes and intriguing photos - but the best part is that the issue is entirely devoted to Rodarte. Some lovely shots of their clothes, q&a from friends like Jenny Lewis and Eleanor Friedberger, and an interview with the designers themselves. I love that everyone is asked who is their favorite Dickens character.

Another great thing about the Pricked: Extreme Embroidery show at the Museum of Art and Design was discovering the work of Andrea Dezso. Her exhibit in the show was composed of whimsical interpretations of her mother's folk sayings - created in tiny, elegant embroidery. The sayings were hysterical and her illustrations absolutely lovely. It was awesome to look her up and find she has a vast and varied body of work - including public art, sculptures, paintings, and illustrations.

Love this photo of Charlotte Gainsbourg by Nan Goldin in this week's New York Times Magazine. The series of photos were taken in the Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature. It's an incredibly unique space and one of my favorite museums. Below is a picture I took of that same bear.

I met the amazingly talented and prolific illustrator Julia Rothman last year - although I've known of her through her digital illustrations in CITY magazine for years. I especially love her hand-drawn illustrations. She recently created a line of letterpress cards for Hello Lucky and I so need to purchase a set of the chandelier cards.
She also must have the best book collection in the world and shares her passion for books on her book review site, book-by-its-cover.com. I've found so many inspiring books and artists through her site, and am very excited to announce that today Julia has featured my sketchbooks in her weekly sketchbook series.
