How to Hanami


For two weeks each spring Japan's cherry blossoms bloom and fall, and tourists from around the world take on the challenge of planning trips to catch the trees in bloom in a bid to experience the fleeting season.

From Croatia with Deco Love




Otto Antonini (1892–1959) was born in Italy and later moved to Zagreb, Croatia, where he became a popular illustrator. After graduating the Accademia di Belle Arti, he became a designer in the art deco style. The cover comps here, drawn from an exhibition catalog at Muzej grada Zagreba in 2006, are from Svijet (World) from 1926–1932. Antonini was its visual editor and the main illustrator of the illustrated weekly (the first issue of which came out on February 6, 1926). He also founded and edited the satirical Bishop magazine, and under pseudonym Strihnina published acerbic cartoons.
He was also known for designing and illustrating postage stamps.

The Fantastical Feasts






If flamingos dined together at a table in Miami, Florida, what would it look like? How about cheetahs in South Africa or sloths in the Peruvian Amazon? These are the gatherings that fine art photographer Claire Rosen brings to life.
 Over the past six years, she’s photographed 55 species in about 20 locations worldwide, creating whimsical images of animals reveling — and indulging — around elaborate banquet tables.
The resulting work is called The Fantastical Feasts.
