I always thought Thursday was really the day to celebrate Happy Hour. Friday seemed so banal, so been-there-done-that. And so today, from my bookshelf to your eye: “Camparisoda: l’aperitivo dell’arte veloce futurista da Fortunato Depero a Matteo Ragni.”*
* Camparisoda: the aperitif of fast, futurist art from Fortunato Depero to Matteo Ragni. Fortunato Depero was the designer of the 1932 Camparisoda bottle and one of the founders of Italy’s futurist movement. Matteo Ragni is a contemporary designer living and working in Milan, who picks up where the former left off. This book sits near my desk, an inspiration from the past and the present.
Above: images from the book. Everything from the original designs, to wall paper concepts, to an ingenious concept for a glass made out of the empty bottle itself. Cheers and bottoms up!
Cheers, Ms. C. Your post today made me sad. Wondering: what are you “mad” about? Is it losing the other kitten? Or just “things”? I myself have been overtaken with melancholy. I think it’s the season. Can’t help it…
Camparisoda! My all time fav but camparisoda & blood orange juice is a good second.
I will have to try that! Sounds very summery. That, some lovely olives, a few peanuts, potato chips, a table by the Mediterranean and I’m set!
Delightful! I could handle a little break anytime now…it’s 3:30 in the afternoon here…….
I hear ya sister. A “break” is well in order!!!! (Hey, p.s., when is your actual birthday???)
January 14, 1949…65 years old at that time. I feel lucky to be here and alive and in good frame of mind and a healthy body…even if a little over-weight! 🙂
Such gorgeous images – wonderful style and colours!
Thank you! I’m so glad you liked it…I didn’t photograph it very well, I’m afraid, but fortunately the book speaks for itself.
