Textbook

If your a fashion enthusiast and a literature or history buff (gasp!), I hope you’re already familiar with Textbook, where our friend and fellow blogger John Januzzi imagines how fictional heroines, cultural icons, and historical figures might be styled for this day and age. Characters like Jay Gatsby, Veruca Salt, Joan of Arc, and Tinkerbell are playfully dissected and outfitted with individualized runway pieces. The collages are meticulously assembled and the captions are witty. All in all, it’s honestly genius. He even takes requests! So dear John, what would Jo March wear?

Photography duo Jeremy Floto and Cassandra Warner, of New York-based Floto + Warner, choose abandoned buildings and the stark landscape of the Nevada desert for their latest photo series. The video is especially mesmerizing, with colorful smoke moving along to Bon Iver’s moody Holocene.
