Or, more accurately three girls’ treasures. Three tortured souls, three great artists. What were their favorite objects, their magic talismans? Bett Norris illustrated the (imaginary) most precious possessions of Sylvia Plath:
and Edith Piaf:
Flowers and death being the common denominator…
You can find these treasures on Bett Norris’ Etsy shop

I’ve been following this Etsy shop since my first days in Etsy. And I am always amazed by Uloni‘s creativity. She takes a most traditional, if not boring, medium (crochet) and completely reinvents it.
The forms she creates are organic, fluid and sometimes almost alive. And always unique. In fact, they are never replicated and once they leave the shop you can never find them again. thankfully, here is some of her best past work, from her flickr account:
Truly one of a kind.

Who’s your favorite writer? Your favorite movie director? Your favorite band? Animal? Chances are that retrowhale has already created a quirky drawing of them in a wood panel. The discovery that lead me to this shop was this portrait series of writers: Hunter S Thompson, Charles Bukowski, Silvia Plath and Jack Kerouac. Amazing, huh?
Or you can go all nouvelle vague and get a set of french directors:
And if this sounds a tad pretentious to you, there is lots of pop culture to choose from, too. For example this series of (mainly John Hughes) 80’s teen movies:
Or choose your favorite music band out of these almost infographic illustrations:
The rest you have to discover by yourselves!

Minimal, wonderfully designed and coloured, these posters vary from the conceptual to the whimsical.
Also of note are Claudia’s series of cut-out paper dolls: the dude, Margot Tenenbaum, David Bowie and other surprising personalities.
