SUMMER READING LIST 
NANCY & KIMBERLY WU  

Nancy & Kimberly Wu the sister-team behind Building Block, a multi-medium design project based in Los Angeles. They design luxury goods with the simple "rightness" and minimalist strength of basic architectural forms. (They also dabble in some pretty amazing tassles). We loved getting a look at some of books they will be turning to for summer diversion and work inspiration. Thanks, ladies!

SUMMER READING LIST 
ERIC MARTH

I've featured Virginia-based photographer Eric Marth's work and projects before, and I was thrilled to get his summer reading list. It's a sunny blend of poetry, gardening, photography and ecology, and Marth shot the books on his own front porch. I can't wait to grab a glass of lemonade and dig in!

SUMMER READING LIST 
RENEE FRIEDRICH 

Renee Friedrich is the woman behind Anaïse, an on-line womenswear and concept shop that displays a kinship with Japanese/French design and aesthetics. Renee is a soft spoken and unassuming individual, but behind her calm, quiet exterior lives a very hard worker with an unfailing eye for the new and beautiful, and we always look forward to seeing what she finds next.
