in the studio with leanne shapton

Leanne Shapton is the kind of woman who does it all. Formerly the art director of the NYT Op-Ed page, she now writes and illustrates books, runs a nonprofit press with a friend (which she founded, of course), creates and sells her own incredible art, and generally kicks ass in the game of life. I fell in love with her Manhattan studio a few years back when it was featured in The Paris Review. She's nailed the eclectic look while staying completely true to herself... it seems as if everything in her space has a story. I've looked at these images too many times to count. I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

mita corsini bland

I found these large interior watercolors by Mita Corsini Bland to be quite visually appealing. They're a feast for the eyes, with so much going on that I'm not sure where to look first. But it's what I love about her work. If you're a Sister Parish fan, than you must recognize her immediately (she did the illustrations for this book). A few of Mita's prints are for sale here, and though they're eons out of my price range I've spent the past five minutes fantasizing about which one I'd purchase and where it would live (Albert Hadley's bedroom, SVP, and I'd hang it to the right of my bookshelf). If you can afford it, you should most certainly snatch one up :)

There is a list in my latest read, Pain, Parties, Work: Sylvia Plath in New York, Summer 1953, of young Sylvia's "vitals." I enjoyed them so much that I thought I'd share a few of my favorites here! These are taken word-for-word from the book... if you're a fellow (fashion) history nerd, scoop up a copy as fast as you can! Trust me.

1. She went on sixty-seven dates between July 1 and August 31 in the summer of 1949.

2. She adored Marilyn Monroe but disliked Brigitte Bardot and Lolita.

3. She never wrote in cursive.

4. She once bought a raincoat for its pink lining – “because I have never had anything pink-colored.”  

5. She drank her coffee black in America but added cream in Europe.

6. She could cook only one dish – devil’s food cake, from a mix.

7. She once adopted a twirling stray cat and named it Nijinsky – because of its leaping grace.
