Inside the Cover...

Good Friday everyone! Ready for the weekend?...I know I am!...

A little 'Inside the Cover' treat to share today - I bought this book about the amazing William Henry Fox Talbot {grand master and inventor of the positive/negative photography process} and the images in this book are just rocking my world!

...I find it hard to believe that these images were created in the mid 1800's...they look so fresh and exploratory - and totally relevant to todays art/design and motifs. The stunning sepia tones also had me at hello {of course}!

Makes me want to get back in a dark-room and it has me seriously pondering whether or not I can clear enough junk out of my massive hall cupboard to do some converting and get photogramming! ;))

Thanks so much for all your wonderful music hints and links yesterday! I am having the best time discovering new finds and being reminded of old faves....do keep 'em coming!

By way of an exchange, I am also enjoying Matt Duke, Dawn Kinnard, some great French music in the form of Ayo and Tété {thanks to my lovely intern Sophie!}, and finally Beirut...nothing better than new tunes for the weekend, right?

Have a lovely one,
xo
