So this should be my new weekley (...?) post on the internet knick-knackery that is catching my eye lately. I am a bit of a horder, so I'm hoping this new method of collecting will prevent me from purchasing any more tiny bronze animal figurines or vintage pencil skirts...but I doubt it.
Shall we begin?
Good Books: Metamorphosis
this gonzo-esque, acid trip down psychedelia lane is the byproduct of a collaboration with Buck--a design-driven production company with offices in New York and Los Angeles--and Good Books, an online bookseller that passes all of it's profit on to Oxfam. Gotta appreciate great great campaigns for good causes, no?
Enjoy, and then go read a book...or buy one.

Her shots seem candid and casual, which I suppose is part of their appeal for me. I love that they seem so unstructured, much like the wilderness they capture.
I dare you to go to her portfolio and not get lost.
