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.
