“Personally I am very pessimistic. But when, for instance, one of my staff has a baby you can’t help but bless them for a good future. Because I can’t tell that child, ‘Oh, you shouldn’t have come into this life.’ And yet I know the world is heading in a bad direction. So with those conflicting thoughts in mind, I think about what kind of films I should be making.”

Julien Douvier: Animated gifs

photography-Cinemagraphs

Artist onTumblr | Facebook | on Behance

Based in France, photographer Julien Douvier offers us here a magnificent series of animated GIF, where he focused on a specific item. This element, such as a person, a drop or a bird will be moving in a completely static environment. A poetic vision that make us understand how these little details are beautiful to contemplate.

Happy Miniature Monday!

Here is a copy of Galileo a Madama Cristina de Lorena, published in 1896 by the Salmin Brothers in Padua, Italy.  The text was originally written by Galileo Galilei in 1615 to the Duchess Christina, and was an attempt to show that Copernicanism could be aligned with the doctrines of the Catholic Church.  Through writing to Christina, Galileo hoped to address a secondary audience of philosophers, mathematicians, and the politically powerful, with  the ultimate goal of dissuading the religious authorities from condemning Copernicus (Dietz Moss,Galileo’s Letter to Christina: Some Rhetorical Considerations).  

On top of the fascinating content, here is another interesting fact about this book that should excite all you Mini Monday fans out there. This edition from the Salmin Brothers is 18 x1 0 mm in size, and printed with hand-set type, which makes it (what it currently believed to be) the smallest book ever printed with movable, hand-set type.  The typeface used is called “flies’ eyes”, and was cut by Antonio Farina in 1834. We have another miniature printed with this typeface here, although it’s not as tiny. According to a Miniature Book Society Newsletter from 2002, “it took one month to print thirty pages” of Letter to Christina due to the difficulty of working so small.  Indeed, the text is so minute that it was pretty hard to get decent photos of the letters—I recommend coming by to see it  to get the full effect. Thus, this little book holds a pretty high place in both the history of printing and miniature books.  

 Galilei, Galileo. Galileo a Madama Cristina de Lorena. PaduaSalmin Brothers, 1896.  The Charlotte M. Smith Miniatures Collection, Uncatalogued.

Martine Johanna Paintings

Facebook

The new paintings and illustrations of Amsterdam based artist Martine Johanna are a surreal mix between fantasy and fashion. Beautiful!
“My very first obsession was for high fashion, folk & ethnic clothing and couture throughout the years, from a young age scrimmaging trough my mother’s closet, shoes and make up. Even though the small village I grew up in did not accept outsider behavior, my imagination never crumbled. Exhaling my emotions in drawing, painting, dancing and creative outbursts. Music and music videos were one of my first loves, I wanted to be a dancer for a long time. Instead, at 19 I went to study art & fashion, obtained a masters degree, became a fashion designer and finally in 2008 fully returned to painting and drawing. I’m still working hard to develop not only my skills technically but also to stay creative over-all. I also teach at the university of Amsterdam, do visual forecastings for big agencies and style fashion shows.” - Martine Johanna

Paintings by artist Martine Johanna, from her solo show “The Grand Illusion of Sanity” which is up right now at Walls Gallery in Amsterdam.
