The Skirt Chronicles are back! This total gem of a magazine finds a very welcoming home at Rare Mags. It’s one of the first titles we stocked when we first opened, because, much like Kennedy, it’s really hard to pin down.
Stones Patla Kijie “The idea with Dorette is that you can wear the pieces all the time—when you do your gardening, when you do the dishes. It’s jewelry you cannot lose.

Holy Water My first encounter with the Greek islands was in 1980 at the tender age of one.

Eleanor Coppola The people that don’t seek the spotlight tend to be the most intriguing. Eleanor Coppola is one of these. She has documented the creative ups and downs of her large family of artists, but has also managed to remain on the sidelines of fame with respect to her own artistic practice.Best known for her critically acclaimed documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse, few people know her as the multidisciplinary artists she is. The powerful body of work she has created, independently of her family's movie making business, has been challenging the limits of what art can be since the 1960’s. Now in her eighth decade, she is the latest member of the artistic Coppola clan to enter the movie making world and is putting a life’s worth of creation into storytelling.
