Art from Marlene Dumas stars this weeks cover Zeit magazine from Germany

 

I love this cover concept by using two covers after each other (page 1 and page 3).

 

Zeit Magazin carries this concept each week and this creates an excellent opportunity to give more depth to their coverstories.

— Lovers’ Eyes

I’m quite taken by these weird Eye Miniatures or Lovers’ Eyes.

 

The Georgian miniatures were normally watercolour on ivory, depicting the eye or eyes of a spouse, loved one or child. These were usually commissioned for sentimental reasons and were often worn as bracelets, brooches, pendants or rings with richly decorated frames, serving the same emotional need as lockets hiding portraits or locks of hair. This fad started in the late 1700s and miniaturists such as Richard Cosway and George Engleheart were responsible for some of the first pieces.
