Benah Loves | Kathleen Whitaker

Kathleen Whitaker’s launched her line in 2003 and we are big fans of her brand. Designed and made in downtown Los Angeles she is known for her “staple” and “sequin” studs and has recently expanded to include beautiful stones. These one-of-a-kind, limited-edition designs combine semi-precious gemstones with the simplest geometric forms. All handmade, the gold components contrast with the organic, elemental stones while adhering to a balance of form and proportion. The result is incredibly striking in their simplicity but so rich in appearance.

Full moon features more than 260 photographs by British artist Darren Almond. As the name suggests, all images are taken under the light of the full moon using long exposures to illuminated the landscapes almost like daybreak.  The enhanced moonlight infuses the landscapes with a sense of the surreal or the sublime. Shadows lose their edges; they become soft and almost indistinct with haunting ideas of time, nature and beauty

ART | ELI CRAVEN

Eli Craven is super cool. Her art works are super cool. Part collage, part sculpture, what's not to love right? And you know how much we love collage.We especially love her series entitled 'Screen Lovers'
'This project started with my discovery of the book "Screen Lovers" by Anne Billson, (Conran Octopus/St Martin's Press, 1988). The images within the book's pages are of romantic, sexually charged film stills throughout movie history. As I looked through them, I really wanted to see them come together, touch lips, make love, whatever comes next, so I followed my instinct and started folding them into one another.' - Eli Craven

BENAH BOOK CLUB | STRANGE PLANTS : COLLECTOR'S EDITION

Welcome to Benah Bookclub. Where we explore books we love, own or admire and celebrate independent and interesting publishers, books stores and sites. Owning beautiful books is one of the great joys in life. Print is not dead, just more luxurious!

Design : Folch Studio
Pages: Strange Plants II 148 pages
Cover: Custom card stock slipcase
Publication Date: September 2015
Language: English

The Strange Plants Collector's Edition includes the award-winning Strange Plants, Strange Plants II, and is a celebration of plants in contemporary art. The two books feature the work of 55 artists—from oozing paintings of rotting cacti to eerie, mesmeric photos of the leafy kudzu vine—and discusses the role plants play in the artists’ personal lives. Each artist’s work is accompanied by an insightful article or interview that delves deeper into the relationships between plants and people.
Designed by Folch Studio, an award-winning design house in Barcelona, which also developed Apartamento magazine, the Collector's Edition was printed in a limited run and will not be printed again. Lucky for us we managed to get ourselves a copy before it sold out.
