#LACAUSAlibrary VOL. I

June 15, 2020

Introducing #LACAUSAlibrary, a series where we nerd out over books and share with all of you. First up, team LACAUSA shares a few of our favorite coffee table books that we've had the time to actually hang out with lately.

KELYNN, Creative Director: I love 90s realism and this book has all my favs in it. I reference this a lot, as you can see by the amount of pages I’ve marked.

Right: Ellen von Unwerth and Richard Prince

I moved from Chinatown to a place with a yard last year and started a garden, I've been buying so many vintage gardening books since then!! 

A classic! This Ram Dass book has come with me everywhere I’ve moved since high school. These pages below feel super relevant right now 

REBECCA, Founder + Designer: These 3 beautiful books have been sitting on my coffee table for ages. It’s only in quarantine I’ve been able to really spend some time with them. 

An original I snagged from my parents collection. Printed and bound in Paris in 1973. What an incredible weirdo!

A beautiful gift from a girlfriend. I love watercolors so much.

Also a gift, this book is so beautiful to me. These sacred abstract paintings are are used to awaken heightened states of consciousness.  
Left: Plate 21 - “Each tender region bearing its own spiral, in an even stronger dispersal of the world’s energy, its Shakti."
Right: Plate 39 - "The purer the consciousness, the bluer and clearer the sky."

SAMANTHA, Design + Social: There's something so simple and pure about these books. I take inspiration from Shel's illustrations and poems, I love the feeling of nostalgia I get when I flick through these.

I'm a big magazine girl- always have a different rotation out on display. 

I bought this vintage book before I drove cross country last year, and although some of the info isn't relevant anymore, I'm a nerd and I like to study the maps and pick up random tidbits about different places I've traveled through. 

Stay tuned on social for our next LACAUSA Library shares and book recs from the team.
