Claire's Book Stand II (II)



The idea of Claire's Book Stand had been to have a gathering in a small park, but the weather brought rain. Instead, then, the prints, books, and magazines were shown at the Freunde von Freunden apartment – with tea and fruit being served in the kitchen. Of this afternoon, I most remember the words and the light: conversations with Claire, Jordan, and Anne, and the spare between-the-rains-light, turning the place into a stage against the windows. The visual conversations, too, between the magic photographs by Mary, Anne, Jordan, and many others.

Claire's Book Stand II (I)


A Sunday in late June. Claire Cotrell's Book Stand II. Went home with Anne's book and a head full of ideas.
Merci, Claire! (Her summer print shop has great work by Mary and Brian, too. And by Sanne and Camille.)

i arrived early for lunch at the canteen, as i had to catch a flight back to berlin in the afternoon. a beautiful calmness to the place, then the bustle of friends coming to share a meal as i was leaving. 

today's a happy day: i cleared the planters of my sidewalk garden of old leaves and barren branches, dried tips. the lavender surrendered to the fierce berlin frosts, the roses holding out, showing red shoots. we are ready for spring. yes, we are.
