I don’t know about you but I am really excited about the upcoming Gilmore Girls reunion shows. I love that show so much and am so excited to see what has happened in Stars Hollow.
I created the Read like Rory Gilmore board on Pinterest a few years ago so I could work my way through her extensive on-screen library. The original list of 339 titles was collated by Patrick Lenton – I just took his list and added some pretty pictures! I thought it would be fun to share some of my favourites from the list in honour of the reboot. The first books I’ve chosen to feature are ones that I consider to be classics. Do you have any favourites from the list?
Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen | On the Road – Jack Kerouac | The Outsiders – S.E. Hinton | Howl – Allen Ginsberg | Complete Tales & Poems – Edgar Allen Poe | The Godfather – Mario Puzo

I can’t remember where I first came across Brian Dettmer’s work but the images of his amazingly detailed book sculptures have stayed with me. I admire artists like Brian so much. He sees unlimited potential in books. He sees past their function.
“The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. The book’s intended function has decreased and the form remains linear in a non-linear world,” says Brian. “By altering physical forms of information and shifting preconceived functions, new and unexpected roles emerge. This is the area I currently operate in. Through meticulous excavation or concise alteration I edit or dissect communicative objects or systems such as books, maps, tapes and other media. The medium’s role transforms. Its content is recontextualized and new meanings or interpretations emerge.”

It’s the start of a brand new week which means it is time to worship at the notebook alter.
