The times when girly girls were fashionable were so much better, and I for one hope they soon return. "

Et si Albrecht Dürer avait eu un Tumblr ? | S.I.Lex

Et si Albrecht Dürer avait eu un Tumblr ? | S.I.Lex | Looks - Photography - Images & Visual Languages | Scoop.it

 

"Imaginons un instant que le peintre et graveur Albrecht Dürer soit soudainement transporté depuis la Renaissance jusqu’à notre époque et que pour diffuser ses oeuvres, il décide d’ouvrir un profil sur la plateforme de microblogging Tumblr...
