Weekend Reads: Links to the Strange and Beautiful

♥ I'm intrigued by the idea of getting a glimpse into the inner-workings of a genius: Explore Darwin's House in Kent with this insightful online tour of his home and office.

♥ Forget the natural look and turn to an 80's favorite for makeup inspiration this year: Boy George on the Runway '09.

♥ Tavi, the tiny style guru designed an amazing tee along with Archive Society. The Tavi T-Shirt is inspired by Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2008.

♥ I'm a bit of a horror fan-girl, and I love kitschy vintage posters, so this collection of 100 horror movie illustrated posters is right up my alley!

♥ This photography exhibit explores the creepy and surreal landscape of abandoned and out-of-business shopping centers. Check out Stores that are no more...

♥ This clever endeavor by artist Alicia Lynn Carrier is perfect for an impoverished art collector: just send her an idea and she will create one of her Ten Dollar Drawings for you!

♥ I love collecting vintage maga-zines,
and I have to admit vintage Playboy's are my favorite, particularly the bright, cheeky covers from the 50's and 60's. But, collecting can get expensive, so now you can take a peek at the Playboy archive online!
