Hello new week. And new world. This week the IDEA Instagram account @idea.ltd will be donating 10% of all books sold on the InstaShop to a new UK fund called OCAAT (One Case At A Time). The fund seeks to facilitate legal funding and representation in cases of injustice for Black people in the UK.
IDEA will also use the swipe up feature on Instagram stories to link to petitions we have signed and causes including Black Lives Matter and Black Visions Collective to whom we have made donations. If you have the means and want to show support to OCAAT now, be our guest and hit up the button below.
TOO BRILLIANT TO LOOK AT DIRECTLY. LIKE THE SUN. BURNS ON THE RETINA. THE BEST OF AUDIO / VIDEO INTERIORS. PUBLISHED IN 1991 BUT MORE EIGHTIES THAN MIAMI VICE. A TECH DREAM. IF YOU THOUGHT IT WAS THE SEX THAT MADE 9 1/2 WEEKS SEXY, THINK AGAIN. THIS IS WHAT 'HOME ENTERTAINMENT' MEANS.
Good grief it's good. Right up there with the best books ever.
Can't even begin to explain how we are feeling.
Really do adore a fireplace level television. What the hell kind of super house is this?! We have looked at a LOT of interiors books and this just eclipsed them all.
Three screens please. The text informs the reader that the televisions can of course be set to different channels. So you can be David Bowie in the Man Who Fell To Somewhere In Aspen, Colorado.
Honestly. Screw all other four poster beds, this one has spires and a suspended television. Not to mention the view - or the distinctly average bed linen.
Damn. What isn't going on in this room??!! The garden view is insane. And the giant Jenga blocks coffee table is... well... massive!
One of many surprise it's-not-an-ottoman-and-the-treasure-of-the-chest-is-a-television pictures from the book. This from the chapter 'Best of Both Worlds'. Other chapters; 'Showing Off', 'Seaside Symphony', 'Paradise On The Park' and our favourite 'Electronic Penthouse'. Yes, please!
Back then. Who needs WIFI when you have HI-FI. And NINE (9) remotes! We haven't shown too many of the stereo separates pictures in this newsletter but believe us - if you are into that kind of thing you will get off on this book.
Back to the ultimate fire place house. Don't know if you can pinch and zoom this photo but if you can you'll see that lady in the wicker chair's laces are undone. So casual cool :)
We have three copies of this week's best book ever. Be real quick to buy on the blue button below.
IDEA / WIM WENDERS THE COLLECTION PART TWO. HERE WITH THE HOODIE, SWEATSHIRT, HAT AND SOCKS. ABSOLUTE MAGIC ON THE IDEA STORE.
Organic cotton Paris, Texas License Plate hoodie. The most must have garment we ever made.
And it comes with what is already a very limited edition hat.
A replica of the weather beaten, sand-blasted cap Harry Dean Stanton wears in the movie. Pumice stone washed and hand sand-papered, each hat is ever so slightly unique. A first edition of just 100 hats. And many of these snapped up by stores, you will have to be quick.
Though not as fast as you'll need to be to get the socks. They really, really are in short supply.
And they are extraordinarily cool. This product pic by our friends at Très Bien (thank you). They were the first store to get the socks. They are also sold out already. There just are not enough (sorry).
And the perfectly contemplative Wings of Desire crewneck sweatshirt. Also organic cotton. The late great Bruno Ganz as an angel over Berlin. A marvel of modern cinema.
SUPERBOOKS! AWE AND THEN SOME. THAT REALLY IS IBIZA BY KU BTW. ARRIVED TODAY. THAT BOOK TAKES YEARS TO FIND AND THIS IS THE SECOND COPY WE HAVE HAD IN TWO WEEKS. EVERY ONE OF THESE TWELVE FEATURED BOOKS IS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER TOTALLY WORLD CLASS!
Probably is the best selection of books at any one time in any one place in the whole history of the world. Click through. There are hundreds more.
SIGNED BOOKS! DOUBLE SIGNED IN THE CASE OF COLLIER SCHORR AND PAUL HAMELINE. SHARING THE SPACE WITH THOMAS RUFF, VIVIANE SASSEN, JIM GOLDBERG, PATTI SMITH AND ARI MARCOPOULOS. THIS IS JUST A FRACTION...
Twelve times WOW and that is not even a third of it!
