Above is a post card I picked up at the John Derian store of artist Leanne Shapton's Painted Books, one-of-a-kind pieces made from acrylic and house paint on wooden blocks. I saw them on display at Derian's store while I was walking around SoHo and I think they're so great ($145-$165). I would love to have a bunch of them, they remind me of props that belong in a Wes Anderson film. To purchase go to John Derian at 6 E. 2nd St., or call the store at 212-677-3917 to order. See the blocks in greater detail by clicking here. Oh and for all you Derian fans in New England, he's opening a store in Providencetown this May!
