August 2017 Book Club

Adding a bit of fashion to your reading repertoire never hurts, right? In August we’ll be reading about Grace Coddington, the creative director of American Vogue since 1988. Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington is an honest, candid, and often funny look at the fashion world, how it has changed, how Grace started her career, and how she ended up as one of fashion’s greatest icons. The book is filled with her witty observations, lovely Vogue photos, and also Grace’s very own charming illustrations. We hope you enjoy it, whether you’re a fashion guru or not. Coddington has met incredible people and traveled far and wide. It’s a captivating behind-the-scenes look at an artistic, capricious industry! Find the book here and be sure to tune into @larsbookclub as we discuss Grace this month.

July Book Club: The Brilliant History of Color in Art

July Book ClubHello Lars readers! It’s time to introduce the July Book Club book. July’s book is an easy summer read, but a fascinating one! The Brilliant History of Color in Art by Victoria Finlay investigates every color used in countless artwork. From Stone Age cave paintings to today’s endless array of digital colors. We have any and every color, natural and synthetic, at the touch of our fingertips. But in past centuries, certain colors were hard to find and therefore expensive! Some pigments could only be found in one specific geographic region. Others required smelly, prolonged processes just to produce mere ounces of dye. Finlay takes us back in time, when the making of colors was a remarkable feat in itself. The use of color in art was especially meaningful and symbolic.

Stay tuned for artwork and questions on the blog later this month, and feel free to share thoughts and follow along on @larsbookclub ! Enjoy!
