The abandoned and crumbling city that was once known as Ani is located on the border of Turkey and Armenia. It's peak period was around the 11th Century and it was enjoying a resurgence in popularity before WWI and the Armenian genocide guaranteed it's demise. The Atlantic have collected some amazing photographs of the area, which is slowly becoming more accessible after years of conflict and militarisation.

I couldn't figure out my immediate attraction to this Minimalist Disc Pendant on Moorea Seal. Sure, it's a classy piece. And then I realised it reminded me of an old friend - Pacman. wacca wacca wacca wacca

I noticed on our trips to Japan, there is a kind (genre?) of store over there that is always really full of people, and a hub of activity. It's not one brand, just any store that sells eyeglasses. I'm not sure what it is, exactly, but glasses are really big business over there. Of course, it was only a matter of time before a nerdy designer came up with the idea of frames based on fonts. I have first dibs on Futura!! (If C. doesn't beat me to it)
