The House on the Hill
Jørn Aagaard
The House on the Hill features 40 photographs from the Ennis House in the hills of Los Feliz in Los Angeles and an essay by the architect and Editor-in-Chief of Real Review, Jack Self. "The original meaning of the word “speculate” is, “to observe from a vantage point”. In this sense, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House is the subject of speculation; designed in the Mayan revivalist style, the home is perched high on a hill overlooking Los Angeles. You could stretch the definition to say that Jørn Aagaard’s unexpected, accidental photographic access to the house in April 2019 was also an act of speculation. Over the centuries, “speculation” has slowly had its connection to sight blurred, coming to refer instead to imprecise conjecture. Yet in the world of finance, it has a highly specific meaning connected to risk management and profit. Basically, to speculate is to buy low and sell high – and the Ennis House has also been a remarkable example of this type of speculation." From essay by Jack Self on page 57.

Vanlige potteplanter
Ljå Forlag
"For green-fingered enthusiasts seeking advice on how to look after their leafy companions, there are plenty of titles on hand to guide them through plant parenthood. None of them, however, resemble Vanlige Potteplanter (Common Houseplants), a new title from Oslo-based publisher Ljå Forlag with unconventional plant portraiture from photographer Thomas Ekström. Its pages are filled with advice on how to care for 24 of the most common houseplants, accompanied by Ekström’s shots of everything from a red- flowering hibiscus perched on top of a lavatory to a jungly mass of greenery tumbling out of a car window. “We wanted to create something that was a mix between an art book and a cookbook for plants,” says Ekström.The book was designed by Jørn Aagaard, a frequent Ljå Forlag collaborator. “He’s a good friend of ours and we pretty much gave him free reign to design it as he liked,” says Ivar Kvaal, one half of the duo behind Ljå Forlag. “We wanted the book to appeal to a slightly different group than those who might normally buy a book about plants,” says Kvaal. “So we took the visual language of an artist to create a non-fiction book.” The result? A title that’s perfect for leafing through. Just remember to wash the potting mix off your hands before you crack the spine." — Monocle, 10.11.2021
