In a librarian state of mind

The English teacher Ms. Stubbs from An Education


I went to see An Education this week. My favorite character was the English teacher Ms. Stubbs who lived in a groovy little apt filled with dog eared penguin paperbacks, and other soulful tchochkes- not unlike the gorgeous interior above (well...minus the Philippe Starck ghost chair and Mac computer!) Speaking of nerdy women... above is my silk screen print called Franny goes to school. I created it to celebrate woman like Ms. Stubbs who read alot and wear sensible shoes.
ps. Excellent nerdy Podcast: In Our Time on BBC Radio 4
You can learn about the history of the Frankfurt school or The library of Alexandria while folding your laundry!

Lovely movie. So nicely written, performed, styled. And the teacher! I'd like to be that person to someone one day.
