Monday Inspiration

Cecil Beaton created iconic portraits of celebrities and luminaries over a career that spanned many decades, capturing everyone from Greta Garbo and Marylin Monroe to British royalty, and later shooting Mick Jagger and Keith Richards among the burgeoning hippie generation in Morocco in the late '60s. The Art of the Scrapbook is a hefty volume showcasing Beaton's personal scrapbooks, filled with his own prints along with magazine clipping and various ephemera. This is inspiring me to spend some much-needed creative time with my own sketchbook and a glue stick. Love!
