Nieuwe Kunst

At Florida International University: the Wolfsonian-FIU Collection of Dutch decorative arts includes items from the 1880s to 1940, including hundreds of ornamental bound books, mainly in the style of “Nieuwe Kunst” (Art Nouveau). If, like Adolf Loos (lnglabfr.png lnglabdeu.png), you think that “ornament is crime”, you won’t like it. Loos’s Ornament und Verbrechen was published almost a hundred years ago. In that time, I think we have seen that there are worse crimes in architecture than an overabundance of ornament.

Easy answers to hard questions

One nice thing about the web is that it has an answer for every question. For example: what is the good life? Philosophers have argued about this for thousands of years. But now, in just a few minutes, you can find out just how good your life is.
Your Life is 78% Perfect
Your life is pretty darn perfect. You don’t have much to complain about. Of course, your life is occasionally less than perfect. But you’re usually too happy to notice.
How Perfect is Your Life?
Not only that, but I look just like the gal in the picture.
