Aliza Karu makes me want to read. The Angels and Demons creator is collaborating with Libriamo Tutti to celebrate a different book each month. This month’s Booklook is inspired by Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84, which I now want to read. [UPDATE: I am now reading it and have been for a while, and will be for a while, since it’s over 1,000 pages long. If you can make it to page 487 (in the English edition), when Aomame goes to work on Leader, the book does indeed turn wonderful. But those first 486 pages—ho hum, not “ho ho.”] Ms. Karu’s gorgeous ensemble includes miniature versions of the two moons that shine over Murakami’s Tokyo. In this ensemble, they float over an av’s shoulder, set off by a transparent train that rises up instead of trailing behind. Check out Callie Oh’s classic pic for a better sense of the whole look.
I suspect that this is a wedding gown, but given my recent complaints about men, I choose to see Portia as some kind of wintry vengeance demon. A scorned woman’s wish is her command.
