The Upset

Gestalten kindly sent me a copy of The Upset. This is a book I’ve wanted since last year! I could spend hours and hours looking at it (and I intend to).

    That painting was in the royal tennanbaums, I did some research on it, apparently it belongs to Wes anderson. And the artist took the photos and then commissioned another artist with a particular style to paint it. Wes anderson didnt know that till after tho.

  • I asked Santa to get me this book for Christmas.
