always love going to broadway market on a saturday and especially to donlon books – there are always so many books that i want to buy from there – the owner has an exceptional eye and has a great selection – its a good place to go if you are stuck for gifts. on my list is the beeautiful photography book Frida by Ishiuchi Miyako, which documents the dresses and personal belongings of Frida Kahlo – its an intuitive way of telling the life of Frida through her possessions. the photos are simply beautiful. it also reminds me of our visit to mexico with the kids 6 years ago – a wonderful cultural experience that still remains with me.
other interesting books are ‘The Biba Years 1963-1975′ and Edmund de Waal, a retrospective publication devoted to his ceramics – a very interesting ceramicist artist who I have loved watching his development from household objects to objects of art..
