‘The Barbican Estate’ by Stefi Orazi
‘The Barbican Estate’ by Stefi Orazi explores the eccentricities of living inside an iconic modernist experiment. Explore interior design and the daily rhythms of life on the estate through essays, memories, and photography.
“Grow Fruit & Vegetables in Pots” by Aaron Bertelsen
A collection of planting advice for growing fruit and vegetables in pots from Great Dixter, Christopher Lloyd’s acclaimed English garden. It couldn’t be more relevant in these times of lockdown and social distancing – and where you might not have all that much outside space for growing things.
Alternatively, you could just try the 50 delicious recipes that showcase a few perfectly chosen ingredients.
“Jazz, 1947” by Henri Matisse
Despite its musical title —likely named for the experimental, improvisational nature of its compositions— the book’s dominant themes are the circus and theatre. A true classic and one of Black Eyewear’s founder Robert Roope’s personal suggestions.
