TAKE MY BREATH AWAY
BOOK STAND founder Claire Cottrell transports us to Berlin for a 3 day installation of art books about the natural world, including BOOK CLUB No. 2 – an afternoon celebrating the high art of self-published printed matter and alternative shopping situations, a candlelight reading by Los Angeles-based photographer, Jordan Sullivan, a viola performance by Berlin-based Doreen Ooi, photography from The Summer Print Shop, a collection of prints about the natural world in a specific color palette.
A time to read and look through books with friends, over tea.
A time to sit and listen, after dinner, before cake.
A time to meet new people and tell stories.
Wild yarrow, verbena and thyme tea from the fields outside of Berlin.
Fresh pasta with lemon basil, oregano and peppermint.
Lemon olive oil cake
Local apple pear juice
