Fashion, The Reading List

The Joy of Books

These books came in the post for me last week, with more to come. If there’s a Great Boyfriend Lotto, I’ve got a winning ticket.

Posting will be a little bit slow this week as said Great Boyfriend is otherwise occupied and probably won’t be able to edit photos.  You can probably tell that this was not taken by him.  D’oh.  I’ve got an interesting project coming up (more on that in a few weeks – mysterious, wha?) so I really should learn how to use my DSLR properly instead of using at as an expensive, fragile paperweight.

Above are a slew of fashion books, some on Lee Miller photography, a history of glamour, Frida Kahlo’s Diary, The Annotated Lolita (so I don’t miss any Nabokov jokes) a book on tattooed ladies, a history of the Bright Young Things and a guide to tying scarves.  Do you approve?

Expect lots of book-centric posts over the next few weeks.  Lots of ‘em. Lots and lots.

  1. Wowza that’s some collection you have there…I’ll be interested to hear how you get on. I hear ya, I managed to buy 2 sessions of an introduction to photography on the daily coupon deals! I can’t wait to learn how to use all settings my camera has to offer…I fear there are many functions going to waste at the moment! :)

  2. I’m so envious of your book collection. I was such a little bookworm when I was younger but I barely read now. Really want to start again. I love books, like actualy physical books, none of this e-reader shite. It’s all about a biiiig bookcase full of interesting books with old-smell pages :D Tattooed lady book looks interesting, is it good?

    • So far it’s really interesting – it’s more a history of tattooed ladies in sideshows and circuses than just women with tattoos. Really wish there were more detailed photos though!
