A busy week with a very few lazy moments
Milano_Nearby Stazione Centrale
I wish a very happy Christmas to all of you and I hope to keep posting throughout the upcoming holydays but much will depend on my internet connection… I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Another sign I saw this week on a building, it reminded me of Christo‘s packaged artworks.

Today I thought about starting a series of everyday things that look like art.
I’ll begin with this dismissed shop sign that I spotted on a rainy day this week and that made me immediately think about swiss artist Jean Tinguely‘s projects.
Mr.Tinguely in front of the Duomo (Milano) in 1970.

Would you like to see more of this home?
I definitely own too many magazines.
Sometimes I try to get rid of them to clear some space on the bookshelves but most of the time after a flick through their pages they’re coming back there straight away.
Same happened today.
This is part of my collection of The Face, the british pop culture not-so-politically correct magazine that ruled in the nineties and promoted the work of so many talented photographers and stylists.
I used to love its bright, colourful and bold graphics and its close relation with UK young popular culture, now I don’t constantly read so many british magazines anymore…
What about you? Which one is (or was) your favorite magazine?
//1 Macaulay Culkin turned bad-boy shot by Terry Richardson [ n.69 november 2002 ] //2 colophon [ n.39 april 2000 issue ] _ //3 bold graphics for an issue dedicated to Jarvis Cocker back on middle nineties [ n.82 july 1995 ] _ //4 fashion issue | styling Katie Grand and photos by Mert Atlas + Marcus Piggot [ n.44 september 2000 ] _ //5 the more recent that I found is this one, which I guess is also the last number [ n.87 april 2004 ] _ //6 Futurama cover [ n.33 october 1999 ]
