Love loves to love love.
No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
Happy Art’s 1,000,050th Birthday!
Diana Slip, a French lingerie company from the 1930’s owned by Léon Vidal. To say that they were a “lingerie company” is actually a bit loose . To be clearer, it was more like part of a erotica-supply conglomerate that made and sold fetish wear, condoms, erotic books and photography, and established the Librarie de la Lune (which I’m assuming is a pornographic reading room, but I haven’t been able to find concrete information on that.) They also produced a series of illustrated catalogues/magazines (including Lingerie Libertines and The Paris Magazine) with excellent fine art photographers such as Brassai, Jean Moral and Roger Schall.

four years and still counting! thank you tumblr
I remembered just now that I started this little venture of mine in December 2008 and now, four years, 17000 posts and few other tumblrs later, I noticed that I’m only 10 followers away from 11000 and that I have more than 2 million visits on this blog, which is quite awesome considering the fact that I’m not really active last half of year or so…. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you all for sticking around with me, especially to those of you who are here as long as I am, some even longer ( you know who you are:)
much love to you all!
p.s. do listen my 2012 song of the year Alles ist ein Wunder by Bersarin Quartett
is wrapped silently in the snow’s winding sheet,
I hear—long, doleful, blood-curdling—the howl of wolves
