This week's links. Enjoy.
She Builds Domes in Air
I just love this extraordinary short 16 mm film by artist Catherine Sullivan, featuring model Kristen McMenamy exploring the darkly delicate world of the Alexander McQueen spring/summer collection, Sarah Burton’s third and most celebrated yet.
Michael Pollan's Food Rules Animated in Stop-Motion
Love this clever stop animation version by Marija Jacimovic and Benoit Detalle of Michael Pollan's iconic book Food Rules — such a great way to visualize numbers and ideas.
Moby Los Angeles Architecture Blog
I just discovered musician Moby's blog about the more obscure architecture of Los Angeles, and it's wonderful — he finds beauty in the grittiest parts of town.
Fascinating essay by Francesca Mari about how what's on our bookshelves — and how we arrange the books once they're there — says about us.
Famous Artists Photographed With Their Dogs
Fun little slide show of artists (including David Hockney, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, Georgia O'Keefe and René Magritte) with their dogs.
Otto Penzler picks the 10 best lines in film noir. If Valentine's Day has left you feeling like you've had a surfeit of sweetness, the bracing cynicism of these classics will fix you right up.
Judging Books By Their Covers
The Millions does a side by side comparision of eleven recently published novels, one printed for the U.S. and the other for the U.K. Interesting to see how American and British tastes differ (or how marketing departments think they do).
Fennel and Potato Soup
Looking forward to trying this one out — it sounds like such a delicious and comforting soup to enjoy for a light supper on a cold winter evening. Via Saveur.
