Project room Myownbooks By CasamadreFashion / Design / Graphics / Photography / Performance By Fulvio Ravagnani
We asked Casamadre – finalists of Who is on Next 2013 – to take some photographs of their personal library and to answer some questions on the topic of books.
What are your favourite books?
David : Ask The Dust by John Fante, but I’m currently reading China Study
Alessia: Narcissus and Goldmund by H. Hesse.
What was the first book you read and loved?
David : The Book of Secrets by Osho.
Alessia : The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Are there books that you find in some way inspiring?
David : To tell the truth, none at this particular time, but I always find books about the sentimentalism of the soul interesting.
Alessia : The Bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafak.
Are you in favour of digital books or do you still prefer traditional ones?
In all honesty, we are both still fond of the old, dusty, paper format books; flicking through the pages and the thrill of reading is much more tangible... we’ll leave the digital stuff to e-mails !!!
