Join the Dots

So, judging a book by its cover is generally viewed as a bad idea. However, when i picked The Accidental by Ali Smith from a pile of books my mom bought, id by lying if said i didn't just want to read it because it had a nice cover. But, turns out that she is a great writer and i absolutely adored this book.


Then, when i was doing some blog browsing on my favourite french blog, the cherry blossom girl, i happened upon some really great images from Lula magazine, and i found this picture again on a double page spread. Lula was set up by ex-Vogue writer Leith Clark and is fashion, film and art all rolled into one. It's a great place to find dreamy shoots. I have only ever accessed it online but if anyone knows where i might be able to find it in Dublin, do please let me know.

The photographer is William Eggleston. Who i now also adore. Lots of great 70's prints. Love love love. He's an American photographer who is apparently credited with securing recognition for colour photography as a legitimate artistic medium to display in art galleries.









So, always judge a book by it's cover. You'll be amazed what you might learn from it.

Yeah I don't think you can get Lula in Dublin but it's readily available in Relay in Paris so remember to stock up when you go. You can also get it really easily in NY or LA but it's really expensive to buy it there.

That's really odd, was the pic part of a fashion shoot?

It seems it was a piece about the photographer. Again, silly me, i didn't even notice that...
