♥ Hello darling, show me your heart! ♥

Many a wonderboy the world has seen but not even one gets close to our dearest Dimas*.
We are absolutely enchanted by this little darling who has done more than warm and enrapture these beating hearts of ours.
Every little thing he touches turns to dreamy starshine, the sky and the moon pale in comparison to the marvelous glimpses we have seen of his world.

If there ever was magic, it's been in his hands and his heart since the beggining of the times!
These are his favorite things:

♥ Inedit Mafalda + comic strips cut from papers. That was the first Mafalda book i got, which my lovely cousin Elga gave to me (:

♥ Chosen pages from Oscar Wilde. Brilliance never ends.

♥ - Punto y línea sobre plano, de Vasili Kandinsky. Un esencial ahora, un gran dolor de cabeza hace tiempo.

♥ Wassily Kandinsky’s Point and Line to Plane. An essential now, a great headache once.

♥ Choose Your Own Adventure Series’ The Cave of Time. These books are another classic from the 80’s, oh yes.

♥ Beatles Complete: Guitar Edition. Despite its name, it’s incomplete, has some errors and the artwork is terrible but still is something I love.

♥ (Universal Animalary of Profesor Revillod) by Miguel Murugarren and Javier Sáez Castán. 4096 different beasts to be discovered by oneself!

♥ My favorite collage. Ash gave it to me for a birthday.

♥ Wire star, a gift originally meant for the xmas tree which ended in my bed.

♥ D-Mode magazine, it’s hard to get but it worths it.

♥ Photos of Nana, Polly and Mina at the old patio. I carried them with me on my last trip.

♥ Le Petit Prince, foldout version. Supposed to be a present but I kept it to myself. It’s that it’s too nice!

♥ Abbey Road by The Beatles, the one I always liked the most since side B blew my mind at the age of 6 or 7.

♥ Mom’s Wincofón record player, i rescued it from a donation to some museum my grandma was going to make. Inside, an awful terrible album from which I only like for its colours, the music is so depressingly emetic!

♥ Fenoglio’s chocolate can full of pencils, I carry it with me everywhere when I’m away.
