Happy Groundhog Day

Happy Groundhog Day

Happy Groundhog Day everyone. Meanwhile, here in South Florida it is summer 12 months a year. I am going to a Tennessee Whiskey Tasting and Barbecue tonight. I am bringing a bottle of Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select. Sounds like a fun evening.

I watched the first two episodes of Feud : Capote vs. the Swans last night. If you're not watching it you must. What a cast! I spent a couple of summers in the Hamptons when Truman Capote was there living in Sagaponack and our paths crossed on occasion. 

Speaking of "the swans" and high society, I just got this incredible book. Slim Aarons loved photographing celebrities and socialites and C.Z. Guest featured in the miniseries was a favorite of his.

Slim Aarons The Essential Collection is a fabulous coffee table book. It retails for $175 and I found it on sale for $71.55.

Slim Aarons The Essential Collection by Shawn Waldron

The ultimate and most comprehensive collection of Slim Aarons’s photography ever released, featuring more than 100 previously unpublished images.

This luxe edition provides a deep and comprehensive look at the groundbreaking career of Slim Aarons, spanning five decades. The book begins with Slim’s fieldwork as an army photographer and continues through his fledgling days in Hollywood, opening the LIFE bureau in Rome, doing fashion and travel shoots for Holiday, and finally traveling the world for Town & Country.

After five previous books, Slim Aarons: The Essential Collection presents the best of the previous image collections, including hundreds of iconic black-and-white and color photos, along with more than 100 rare and previously unpublished works. This beautifully produced book, a tribute to Slim Aarons’s incredible contribution to modern photography, is the result of intensive scholarship and research, making it a must-have for any Slim fan and photography lover.
