    Speaking of the Frankfurt school,
    shouldn't Arcades Project be up there somewhere?

    And what about Painter of Modern Life?
    ...I mean the ephemeral, the fugitive, the contingent, the half of art whose other half is the eternal and the immutable.

    Surely, I just went with a few books I either had around my computer or plan to order. I think Benjamin is one of the most relevant SZ author but I might be alone in this.

    /\ No, I agree. But I've never seen the Arcades Project. For real. Actually, next time we are in Paris, we should do our own Arcades Projects. Starting with Palais Royal.

    I feel like if we add all of Frankfurt school, SZ servers will collapse under intellectual weight of modernism. But, hey, as long as we don't add Judith Butler...

    Not alone; I think Benjamin is the most relevant author for fashion, period. We should talk about this some time.

    Faust, you could even put it under architecture, if you want....

    I believe it might be a good idea to keep the artbook/theory+novels ratio to relatively high. So more artbooks!!

    Ok, I have this but it seems the price has risen, still worth getting IMHO but maybe look elsewhere:

    While my feelings lie more towards yours than MonaDahls regarding Fahrenheit 451, I'm resurrecting this more to recommend a book that deals with the theme above. Dream of Scipio by Iain Pears has as one of its central themes the defense of intellectualism (with a specifically heavy emphasis on art history within this) in the face of religious, nationalist, or fascist persecution. Certainly much less casually approachable than Fahrenheit (in many ways one of my chief criticisms of Scipio) but eminently worth the initial patience.

    ___

    anyone have book recommendations for a fashion anthology / narrative of dress amongst & along different cultures + time periods?

    was also hoping for a general introduction to the history of modern fashion---from antwerp up to perhaps the early 2000s/// helmut+hedi etc.

    basically, i need some style maps (Ącircuitous intersections!)
