The Walls Notebook is a journal of blank walls and public spaces to doodle and paint on by New York photographer Sherwood Forlee.

A blank city wall with a fresh coat of paint – is there anything more appealing to doodlers, dreamers, and graffiti artists? Walls Notebook invites you to indulge your inner vandal without the risk of jail time. Here are 160 pages of wall photographs for notes, sketches, drawings, and defacement, all packaged in a delightful lay-flat flexi-bind paperback.

Because all of these things around me are my metaphors

A few of many photos taken from inside Ray Bradbury’s home by LA photographer Zen Sekizawa for Listen to the Echos: The Ray Bradbury Interviews by Sam Weller.

Since Listen to the Echoes was released a little over a month ago, many people have asked about the full-page photographs at the front of each chapter in the book. Here’s the story. Ray Bradbury is a pack-rat. A borderline hoarder. The man saves everything. His west Los Angeles home is museum of his life. Everything is there, from the many autographs he collected as a teenager in Hollywood; to the shelves and shelves of books gathered over a lifetime; to rooms overrun by toys. There are matchbooks going back to the 1940s. Political buttons for candidates he supported in the 1950s. Fan letters written to him throughout his career. Original, hand painted animation cels from a range of classic Disney films, given to Bradbury personally by Walt Disney himself. It’s all in the house.

I have asked Bradbury a few times, “Why do you hold on to everything?”

The answer: “Because all of these things around me are my metaphors.”
