'How to Be an Explorer of the World' by Keri Smith
Around this time last year I stumbled upon Rebecca Solnit’s ‘A Field Guide to Getting Lost’. On the cover it says “An intriguing amalgam of personal memoir, philosofical speculation, natural lore, cultural history, and art criticism”. I totally agree. To me it turned out to be the book that never stops giving. Like yesterday on the train when I re-read this story about ‘Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca’ and his trip through the unknown lands of The South around 1527. I wont spoil anything here, so let’s just say that it is a fantastic and thought provoking adventure just like the rest of the book. Highly recommendable stuff that everyone should hear or read at some point. At least I think so.
But first we should all go get a little lost in the sunny spring. I know I will as soon as I have ordered the book that followed this list.

One last thing for today. I put this on my Facebook last week, but I think it’s suitable here as well. As M put it; this is art!

Also, don’t forget to spend 50 minutes of your Easter with Misha De Ridder and a rather peculiar AOL user.
Excerpts from Landscape Stories Issue 15: Mountains
I’ve been so busy working on new projects lately that I haven’t had the time to process. This week have been different though. Today I finally sat down and read the new issue of Landscape Stories. And it is intense! Quite some work I already knew, a lot of which we’ve featured on Let’s Elope, yet also a lot of new ideas to me. I must say that I am still crazy proud to have my work presented amongst these folks. The above are a few of my favorites.
In order of appearance: Tamas Dezso, Maanantai Collective, Matthieu Gafsou, Jeroen Toirkens, Tito Mouraz, Joël Tettamanti, Rob Hornstra, Kevin Kunstadt, Yann Gross and Bryan Schutmaat
