It's been another crazy busy week for me, so I'm afraid I haven't had a chance to do much on the blog lately. I'll be back soon with some new posts, but in the meantime here are some interesting links I've come across recently. Hope you're all well, enjoy, and see you soon!
The Worst Building in the History of the World
The Ryugyong Hotel in North Korea, the world's 22nd largest skyscraper. It's been vacant for two decades and is likely to stay that way ... forever.
Domino Magazine Flickr Group
Lots of pretty and inspiring photos by Domino editors and readers.
Gazette du Bon Ton
Japanese site that has reproductions of the gorgeous illustrations from the 19th century French fashion magazine Gazette du Bon Ton. Via Little Hokum Rag (which is itself always a fascinating read).
The House of Santa Claus
You know that doodle where you try to draw a house with an x in it, all in one line? It's a very old drawing game for children from Germany called the House of Santa Claus, and there are 44 ways to do it correctly. Via things magazine.
Where Have All the (Normal) Trousers Gone?
Suzy Menkes ponders the lack of wearable pants offered by designers this season.
P.S. The pretty photo above was discovered on emmas designblogg a while ago...
