Your FRI: Book, DIANA VREELAND - THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL - LISA IMMORDINO VREELAND
I completely admire Vreeland, she was avant-garde, of an extreme modernity. Her aesthetic, her universe, inspired me deeply. The World of Yesterday, by Stefan Zweig. The early part of Zweig's autobiography is extremely romantic. I would have loved to live in Vienna in the Twenties and Thirties, a period of culture and openness. Yet it was also overshadowed by the rise in Nazism.
