Vintage | E.A. Seguy

Posted By:Celine
A few weeks ago we posted about John James Audubon and as fans of both vintage and botanical prints we thought it would be neat to follow up with a piece on the lesser known E.A. Séguy, a Parisian painter and entomologist whose work is made all the more interesting as he is somewhat shrouded in mystery. Details on the painters life and work and cloudy at best, with deliberation even on his name and date of birth/death, which happens to be relatively recent at sometime in the 1980's. Regardless, he is best known for a series of work he produced in the 1920's 'Papillons' and 'Insectes' - from which we gathered the shown works for this post. Read More

We have a special treat for you today! When we shot Rachel Riordan's home for our current issue, we also shot a special little space called Sunday's Child (just across the street from Rachel's home), a hybrid vintage shop and maker studio run by Rachel and her partner/friend Jude. These shots are just too sweet not to share so we thought we'd offer up a special feature here on the blog! Enjoy Part 2! Read More

Vintage | Audubon

Posted By:Celine
John James Audubon's legacy is intriguing - an ornithologist and painter who immigrated to the United States from France in 1803, his work has proven incredibly significant both in his naturalist field and in the world of design. Among some of the most coveted and celebrated naturalist painters and illustrators, Audubon is credited with the discovery of 25 new bird species and a number of sub-species discovered while on his journey to paint every North American bird in their natural habitat. His efforts led to the creation of Birds of North America (1827-1839), a color-plate book that is still considered one of the finest ornithological works ever completed— the original recently sold at auction for $11.5 million, a record price for a single book!

Today we're sharing the Paris home of Virginie Denny and Alfonso Vallès, shot by Petra Bindel. The most beautiful shades of gray are so calming yet the subtle hints of wood tones and colour add warmth and welcome. It feels moody and wonderfully quiet, like soft winter snow, yet easy to imagine freshened up with added greenery and flowers for spring and summer. Read More

Today I wanted to share some new work by Jesse Senko, a name PGM readers will surely recognize as he and Melanie, his wife and collaborator in slow food experimentation, contribute the regular Homesteading column to Pure Green (see a sneak peek of their column on pressing cider in our current print issue). They are also the authors of the wonderful blog on the same subject, Homemade Crackers. These dream-inspired, romantic photos really give the sense of staring off into the distance to some faraway land or idea. A little wistful and a little pensive too... they are from Ainslie Wood Co.'s newly released 2012 lookbook entitled Faded Forests. Read More
