This week's links. Enjoy.
Minimalist Beauty in Finland
Take a tour over at My Scandinavian Home of a remarkably serene minimalist home in Finland. Stunning.
A Celebration of Bathing Rituals
Inspired by a new exhibition depicting bathing rituals in art from the 1500s onward at the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris, AnOther magazine takes a look at the history of bathing — and includes some fantastic product recommendations, too. Don't miss the slide show of bathing in art, too.
A Typographic Tour of Paris
Graphic designer Louise Fili describes Graphique De La Rue, her new photography book from Princeton Architectural Press, as "my typographic love letter to Paris". Follow the link to see some of the truly lovely vintage signage she's captured for it.
How to Repot Succulents
Beautifully photographed and informative guide over at hello hydrangea on repotting and general care of succulents — perfect if you're as terrible with plants as I am.
The Persistence of Litmags
Interesting New Yorker piece about how — despite all odds — little magazines continue to be created, and to be read, and to matter.
Star Wars in Wood Block Prints
This is fascinating — Japanese craftsmen are reinterpreting Star Wars through the centuries-old art of wood block printing, as a way of keeping this traditional art form alive. The results are just stunning. Love the photos of the artists carving out the blocks, too — amazingly intricate.
No Cook Pasta Sauces
Perfect for muggy summer days when you want something simple without a lot of time heating up the stove, these pasta sauces take full advantage of fresh summer veggies (or keep it even simpler, with butter, fresh parmesan and cracked pepper).
