Recommended Reading / 03.

Every Monday, words to start the week.

This week: Phaidon editor Joseph Pickard and AnOther Magazine's 10 Amazing Doors and 10 Amazing Windows, a series that pairs Pickard's photos (of above-mentioned amazing objects) with fascinating, door- and window-related facts. (For instance, the very first Christmas display in a department store window appeared at Macy's in 1883 and was activated by shop workers "who took turns walking on a treadmill to ensure its continued animation.")

Three more links, just because:
-"Life With Hundreds of Birds."
-Spread the love, or at least the likes — No Likes Yet allows Instagram users to find photos without any likes, and, well, like them.
-Woman as wolf, according to the poet Clarissa Pinkola Estes: "robust, chock-full, strong life force, live-giving, territorially aware, inventive, loyal, roving."

More recommended reading, here. Happy Monday!


  1. I love the windows and doors. So cool.

  2. Surely every window and door have own stories. Love those photos.

  3. Endangered pigeons?! I had no idea they were ever in danger of becoming extinct.

    And I love that wolf as woman quote. Gave me goosebumps!

  4. go us Wolf Women :) Love the windows, I think I'm drawn to windows because of their awesome symmetry and style and sometimes lovely pops of colour!

  5. I love the little Macy's tidbit. Does Macy's in NYC do fancy displays? Even though I'm Jewish, I've always thought it would be super magical to spend Christmas in NYC.

  6. No likes yet is my favorite link of the week, thanks for posting oxoxo

  7. Agreed with Natalie: No Likes Yet is such a heartwarming concept! I love that there are other sensitive souls out there who believe in the importance of validating peers...even in the small gesture of 'liking' an Instagram photo. Makes me smile big. xx

  8. Brianna, yes, all the big department stores do — you have to visit!

    Natalie and Helen, I love it, too :)
