Objet-Lesson








Too good for words.  Artist and designer Carol Fertig has begun sending these delightful postcards daily.  Opt in for inspiration here.  Each day Fertig selects an image from her amazing collection and sends them via email to subscribers.  Previously delivered "postcards" can be viewed in the archives on her site Objet-Lesson.  She provides brief descriptions which allow you to learn a little, while concentrating on what you see.

Trained in fine art with a career in clothing design, Fertig has turned her creative eye to branding for companies such as Sotheby's, LVHM, Mrs. John L. Strong, Barneys and Harry Winston.  Truly, in three-and-a-half years of blogging I have not seen one thing she has sent me before.  It's like a good piece of chocolate before breakfast.

Image three is the heavenly pool-and-exercise pavilion commissioned in 1928 for the Paris home of Baron and Baroness Robert de Rothschild. Architect was Jean-Charles Moreux. Best of all? The pavilion was built around the existing plane trees, which rise up through holes in the pavilion's roof.
