There's something about good literature that inspires you to write too. In these days, good literature can also include blogs. My current favorite is Garance Dore, a darling french woman living in New York. Unlike most (or all?) media about beauty or fashion, her blog is unpretentious, her writing demonstrates a mind with substance, and best of all she's really good at what she does. Each post is accompanied by either a beautiful illustration (like the one above), photo, or video. All of which are made or directed by her.
