An exhibition titled "Women: New Portraits" by Annie Leibovitz will opens next week in Singapore.
Her "Pilgrimage", a picture book that is also part-travelogue and part-biography, brings its readers to places that were associated to historical figures such as Virginia Wooolf, Eleanor Roosevelt and Ansel Adams.
As this shopkeeper flipped through the pages, it gave him the impression that Ms Leibovitz is painting the portraits of her subjects with words and photos of places they resided/visited.
There will be an auction of some of Mr William Koch's collection of wine by Sotheby's in May 2016 that is expected to fetch up to 8-digit figure (USD) in total.
The billionaire is also known to have been the buyer- paying up to $500,000 in total, of FOUR bottles (2 Moutons and 2 Lafittes) of 200-year-old wines touted as once owned by Thomas Jefferson (one of the founding fathers and third president of the U.S.A).
These bottles were later found to be fake!
The fascinating story and the subject of the wine-trading industry was re-told in Benjamin Wallace's "The Billionaire's Vinegar". The book will probably change your tasting experience when you next take a sip of the liquid.
2015 was Caran d'Ache's 100th as well as Singapore's 50th anniversaries. A special collection of the 849 Ballpoint pens was commissioned and here are the 3 pens, each featuring a Singapore motif, presented as the "Little Red Dot Collection.
