Looking in junk shops.

I stumbled across the best shop yesterday in the sleepy town of Bangalow. I bought myself a vintage map of Queensland, so not to forget where I come from! They're moving to New will have to find them there next time. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Madame Bovary

I love Paris in the fall!

Some pics from my recent Paris Jaunt!

First stop, lunch at Vivant...

Next stop our friend's place, the lovely Au Passage...

Some nice type...

We managed to get a tour around Idem Paris, what a truly magical place! There is something very special about this space, maybe its that Picasso and Matisse printed here in their day or that David Lynch made his very first Litho print here and fell head over heels in love with Idem, or perhaps its just the beautiful smell of the paints that makes it so nice. Anyhow we felt very privileged to be shown around by the lovely chap running it and were impressed that our hang overs had completely vanished on if by magic.

David Lynch's first ever litho print

I bought this plate...

For a friend of mine from the Rob Ryan shop a couple of weeks ago. "I made this plate because I have a big hole in my heart, I thought somehow it might help to fill it." Each one is hand printed and every colour is different. Gotta love Rob x
