Crowns of Color + Best of the Web

by Grace Bonney

All week I’ve been running back and forth between the city and upstate NY for exciting fall projects related to our new book (out on October 4th!), and all I’ve wanted to do this week is collapse into the sofa with Julia and our pets. This morning, I indulged in a little bonding time with our first dog, Hope, and ended up goofing around on Snapchat attempting to put the silly crown on her head. I ended up snapping a pic with the flower crown, but no luck with the regular one. But that got me thinking about an old series of prints I loved from Andrea Pippins called Crowns of Color. These screen prints celebrated women of color looking regal and amazing, surrounded by beautiful patterns and colors. The series isn’t available for sale anymore, but this series still makes me smile and feels like a positive image to focus on when the world news is anything but. Here’s hoping everyone has a safe and happy weekend. xo, grace
