Today some golden ornaments arranged as a X-mas tree.


Did you buy the gifts? 

Do not worry about these small things. Think in Love as a Christmas gift. So, hug your wife and kids, or parents or boyfriend or girlfriend and tell them you love their company or simply you love them  because they are alive.  And they breathe and they love you!

This is a good time to do it.

This is the story of the Rafle du Vélodrome d'Hiver or the episode known as "Vel' d'Hiv Police Roundup / Raid". The most hidden historic event and the cause of the shame of a whole country, France. And it is the story of the 13.152 french jew citizens arrested and deported to Auschwitz for total extermination.
The story is about two women. One little girl named Sarah Starzynski and a grown girl called Julia Jarmond. The little girl living in 1942 and the other one in our times. The first one surviving the death of their family and the other one fighting with the ignorance of the french husband.
Two women living in two different times. Two stories.
And an amazing movie with a splendid photography directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner.

 Trailer Le Fabuleux Destin dÁmelie Poulain


Everything is baroque and all the colors saturated. It is funny and sad. 
There is a lovable role of Amélie Poulain which took Audrey Tautou to the fame. 
You must pay attention to the details, even when it is very difficult to notice all what is happening in the sides of the story.
Finally, a intense and naive love story. Old fashioned way.
It is absolutely recommended for designers and illustrators and artists in general just because it is insanely beautiful.

I was visiting Brazil in october of the past year. I love Rio. You have to live the experience. The nice weather all day, the seaside and the amazing geography and landscapes.
And there are a lot of museums to visit. A lot of culture.
I made and article about Found Typography for Inspiredology.com, invited by Chad Mueller.
