North and South

I received a letter from the reader Steven yesterday,asking me about the colors in North and South of Italy. So here are two places that inspire me most:
Camogli, it's a small fishing village and my favorite place to spend some days in spring,taking sun bath,drinking good wine and eating great food.If you are coming to Italy it's definitely worth of visit,in the mean time you can take a virtual walk here,but of course it's less romantic.

The second one is in South Italy,it is small town named Alberobello,I've never been there but it must be beautiful.Houses in the photo are a traditional stone dwelling with a conical roof.I would love to spend my next holiday in one of these!

Just a quick update from my yesterday's flea market hunt:
Giant pepper mill
and beautiful children's book illustrated by Alain Grèe:

Since I found beautiful road map few weeks ago,I'm in love with all things Czecoslovakian.Here are just some of my favorite illustrators:

Jana Sigmundova,

Sylvie Vodakova,

Jiri Behounek,

Kveta Pacovska,

Radek Pilar.
