A Family Feud Rocks the Art World and an Author’s Butterfly Obsession Takes Center Stage

What We’re Reading

BY // 07.12.16

Our editors are a diverse lot, and are constantly perusing a long and broad list of publications. Fashion? Art? Architecture? Culinary studies? Semantics? It’s all here. In What We’re Reading, PaperCity shares the wealth.

Vladimir Nabokov, the author of Lolita and Pale Fire (to name but two of his great works) was a brilliant and prolific writer (and a respected butterfly collector). In fact, Speak, Memory may be the greatest memoir ever written. Click here for a few words about it.

Tim Duncan is retiring, and that’s big news. He spent his entire career with the San Antonio Spurs, and made the All-Star Team 15 times. Here’s a look at some of his other accomplishments.

Hiroki Nakamura. Remember that name, if you don’t know it already. And if you don’t, you will soon. The Japanese designer’s label, Visvim, is hot, and the man has a fine aesthetic. Take a look here.

Picassos, van Goghs, Cezannes, and a Pollock. Just a few of the artists whose works were owned by Basil and Elise Goulandris, and are now at the center of an acrimonious and complex family feud. Click here for all of the intrigue and skullduggery.
