take a peek at the chapter in our things we love coffee table book that inspired this month's theme
July 02, 2013  |   column: THINGS WE LOVE


“we’re constantly inspired by the spirit of the cinema. we embrace the chance to escape–if only for a few hours–to a faraway adventure (or simply an air-conditioned seat on a hot summer day). whether you’re settling into a plush velvet seat or catching a special screening of the thomas crown affair at the drive-in, there’s a feeling of festivity about seeing a film.

and the trappings of cinema are just as enchanting: those opening title sequences (of which saul bass is king), well-styled sets, wardrobes that steal the show and clever turns of phrase effortlessly delivered by an especially charming actor all prove that often the post is (almost) beside the point.”
