I've a weakness for old photo albums and scrapbooks.... the yellowed pages, the curled edge of a pasted down clipping, the annotations in careful script and the telling ways in which the maker juxtaposed elements and created each layout.... these lovely examples are from the scrapbooks of one Barbara Johnson (1738-1825) who began pasting in swatches at age 8 and continued into her eighties.
In my thrillingly delusional existence as a world renowned designer, stylist, photographer, writer, flea-market scavenger and tap dancer my wandering eyes chance upon many items of wonder and beauty. This blog is where I share my visual discoveries. Thanks for wandering over and taking a look.
