Less is Never More, Less is Obviously Less

Several weeks ago a couple of readers emailed to ask, "Why would a blogger pull his blog?!" It seemed Maxminimus was gone. I had some thoughts on why one would give up blogging, but had to sheepishly admit that I had not hit this gentleman's site.

Just when I was just starting to miss him, odd as we had never met, he returned. He weighs in on clothes and books and hotel rooms far and wide and tells charming tales of his daughter. Pretty often there are wonderful rugs. Carpets, not hair pieces. Actually, I think I'm supposed to be looking at the socks and shoes. Anyway, this weekend, he posted this wonderful staircase chocked full of old Vanity Fair caricatures from Birkhall, the former home of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

It looks like there is a piece of molding that runs between the rows of prints. And I'm gobsmacked by the way some of the pieces are framed to accommodate the slant of the stairs.

Queen me.
