Yesterday I spent the day on top of a teetering ladder hanging giant moths & ships from the ceiling and tacking, nailing, pinning & taping gorgeous over sized prints to the wall of Barometer Gallery. I was installing my photographic exhibition of shots from my book, ‘Etcetera etc: creating beautiful interiors with the things you love’. The opening was such a success with Absolut Summer cocktails full of rosemary, oranges & mint flowing all night at the expert hand of my assistant, Hannah and ice cold water from the very special charity, Water for Water. Pop in to Barometer Gallery (13 Gurner St, Paddington) anytime this week between 12-6 to check out the installation & just enjoy the space. Chris & I are having a q&a on Saturday 19 from 2-4pm- hope to see you there!!
My new book, Nomad, has lead me to think about the crisis that independent booksellers face- to support them & to encourage people to shop locally ie not online and to enjoy the knowledge & personality that comes with a great independent bookseller. If we do not support these fabulous shops they will go & this would be a great travesty.
For the launch of Nomad, we targeted what we admire as amazing Australian bookshops that are to be celebrated (hope to see you at my remaining booksignings!)-
