Letter From The Editor: Simplicity

Posted in Art Nouveau with tags , , , , , , on August 10, 2009 by James Field

The effects of things that are simple, minimal and austere has greatly impacted my life. The simple things in life seem to attract me to them, a single rose, an all white painted room, clouds, a lake, they are all beautiful in there design. I believe that simplicity is more elegant that anything elaborate and complicated. Simplicity is true beauty.

Letter From The Editor: Individualism

Posted in Art Nouveau with tags , , , , , , on July 31, 2009 by James Field

Originality and personal style, is something that should be embraced and cultured, for it is a unique, and important identification of ones self. The ability to take pride in your appearance is strength that is hard to come by. I believe self respect is a powerful thing, and once you have it, your unstoppable. When you feel like people may not understand you because you like to dress a certain way, listen to a certain genre of music, or eat specific foods, remember who you make these decisions for, YOU.

Individualism- Is the moral stance, political philosophy, ideology, or social outlook that stresses independence and self-reliance.
