New York Times Best Book Covers

22nd December 2013 | Flora

The New York Times feature what they consider to be the best book covers of 2013 – to be honest, I don’t think it’s the greatest list, but I shall show you eight of the twelve selected here:

Heaven’s Gate

9th December 2013 | Flora

When the movie Heaven’s Gate was first released it was slated in so many different ways; one of the most memorable was that it’s lead actress, Isabelle Huppert, had a face like a potato.

Anyway, the film’s gone on to be revered today as perhaps the greatest Western ever made and to celebrate the release of a fully restored cut on DVD, let’s enjoy the reality that was ‘potato-face’.
