I have the whole week off to enjoy before I start my new job next week. Waking up whenever and of course, starting my day with a few cups of coffee are high on my to-do list.
Whether my projects around the house get done or not done, whether I read that book or I don't, whether I figure out the meaning of life or not..............it is still a week to myself and I am looking forward to it!

In the spirit of Halloween, what better to feature than something from Pentagram.
Michael Beirut, a design partner for the NY design firm Pentagram, has an exhibition of his personal notebooks (1982-2008) at the Esther Massry Gallery at the College of Saint Rose . The exhibition entitled 26 YEARS, 90 NOTEBOOKS is not only impressive, but very inspiring. Filled with sketches, notes and doodles, these notebooks show the creative mind at work day after day, year after year.

For those of you already living in France, head over to L'Atelier Beau Travail Oct 8 & 9 or Oct 15 & 16 and support some great work.
L'Aterlier Beau Travail is a creative workshop of 4 comprising of: Delphine Dunoyer, Céline Saby, Rachel Peloquin and Georget Hélène. I will share some of my favorites maybe next week.
The MOMA website is full of treasures and lets you view works in their collection that are not currently on display. Here are some of my favorites from Le Corbusier - both lithographs and architectural drawings.
All images above are from the MOMA collection.
To see more works by this architectural master including his projects, buildings, furniture design and art work....go to Foundation Le Corbusier.
