Tronsmo’s backyard sale = Winning!

Every year, Oslo’s most awesome bookshop has this huge backyard sale. If you’re not able to find ONE book there that you want to buy, there’s something wrong with you!

I usually head for the photography section, because Tronsmo has the largest and most interesting photo book selection in Oslo. And the yearly backyard sale always offer a bunch of them for half the price (or less).

I went today with my friend Kris, and she ended up buying two bags full of amazing stuff. So now she has to buy another book case to store them in :razz:

To top of the day, Kris bought me a Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial! Thank you, honeybuns! :wink:

My most precious books from today’s sale:

Roger Ballen – Photographs 1969-2009. He’s known for his dark and disturbing photograps. And they truly are dark and disturbing. Even for me! If you like Die Antwoord, check out their video “I Fink U Freeky”. Roger Ballen has directed that video and has used lots of his own images as inspiration for the video. Check them all out!

Harmony Korine – Pigxote. Harmony Korine is an american film director, producer, screenwriter and author. He wrote the script for the movie Kids (1995) and wrote/directed Gummo (1997), which is one of the weirdest and most disturbing films I’ve ever seen. And of course I loved it! :D The book, Pigxote, brings together forty-nine photographs from Korine’s private archive. Check him out – check out Gummo. And he’s even directed a short movie with Die Antwoord – “Umshini Wam”. It’s awesome!

Dave Cooper – Overbite / Dave Cooper – Underbelly. Overbite is a hardcover art book featuring over 40 of Cooper’s gorgeous oil paintings, each focusing on the female form. Underbelly is a hardcover art book featuring over 50 of Cooper’s luminescent oil paintings and lush drawings, each focusing on the female form. I love these paintings! <3

Here’s Die Antwoord video I Fink U Freeky – directed by Roger Ballen:
