Erwitt notebooks

Filed under: books — alecsothblog @ 1:51 pm

There are some juicy items in the upcoming Christies photography auction, but it doesn’t get any better than this:



  1. were i a luminary figure in art history and i made a couple little notebooks and gave them to meaningful people, i think i’d be a little bummed to see one of them turn up for auction at christie’s. but then again maybe i wouldn’t care. or maybe this person is dead.
