For the PG101 Paper theme.
As a designer of clothing, etc..of sorts, these are a multitude of catalogs that cover my "development" table that I refer to as one source of inspiration, from time to time. I also love their photography.

Chris Budny level-deluxe January 22, 2011

Terrific work, Patti...!
Anthropologie has a flagship store at Rockefeller Plaza, and when I worked upstairs from it, I was constantly stunned by their display windows... they went SO FAR beyond mannequins (I don't think I ever saw one mannequin!) it was always a treat to watch the next window display go up, every 2 months or so. #9184650

Its so cool to learn that your talent goes far beyond photography and that you have a creative nature in other fields. I love the look you have here, the black and white gets you some beautiful tones and I love the full page look. Gorgeous look. I think of BP as my development table. #9209785

I love it when we show each other little windows into each others lives. :)

Fun to see some of the mags you are inspired by, Patti. I had to smile when you said you had many desks. I stopped and counted mine, too! :)

I like the way they are laid out here. We get a taste of them all!!!

Great Job!
