brooklyn diary is here!
thank you to those who placed pre-orders– your books shipped on thursday of last week.
+ to celebrate the launch of the book i made a fun little video, posted above. photographer thayer allyson gowdy used a small japanese video camera as she walked around the streets and shops of brooklyn earlier this summer, and i pieced the scenes together. the music is by josh’s band, the numismatics. obviously, i could use some more experience making videos, but i had fun making it!
+ also to celebrate the launch, brooklyn diary is available with FREE SHIPPING just for the day (until 10pm tonight).
i’ll post a few more photos from the book later tomorrow.
i enjoyed this article on renate müller in the ny times design fall 2010 magazine. müller has been making large, labor intensive dolls from jute, leather, and wood since the 1960s. this fall, the tribeca design gallery R 20th century will mount the first north american retrospective of her work, “renate müller: toys and design.”
