I am starting a new series in which I show selected books from the Edinburgh City Fine Arts Library. I could spend hours in there just flicking through the beautiful coffee table books, but I only ever seem to go in my lunch break and have to drag myself away.
For post no.1 I have gone for a classic, ‘Fresh Fruits’ (‘Fruits’ wasn’t on the shelf where it should have been). I love the Fruits books, but have never got round to owning either of them. I once saw Fruits 1 in the window of a closed charity shop, but I wasn’t able to/ didn’t think it important enough to return the next day, and by the time I went back, it was gone.
Anyway, here’s some pictures. I could photoraph the whole book, they’re all so amazing, but oddly the ones that speak to me most are the more ‘normal’ ones rather that those that are explicitly costumey or themed.
Loveaslug commented on flickr that this one is like something I would wear, and she’s right, I totally would.
