What we search for in a work of architecture is not in the end so far from what we search for in a friend. The objects we describe as beautiful are versions of the people we love. The Architecture of Happiness by Alain de Botton

Illustration from Pete Seeger’s 1956 album, “Washboard Band - Country Dance Music”. Seeger wrote the liner notes for the album and included hand drawn pictures of instruments from washboard bands.
A beautiful portrait taken from the amazing book, Where Children Sleep, by photographer James Mollison. In summary,

Where Children Sleep presents Mollisons large format photographs of childrens bedrooms around the world including from the USA, Mexico, Brazil, England, Italy, Israel and theWest Bank, Kenya, Senegal, Lesotho, Nepal, China and India alongside portraits of the children whose bedrooms are featured. Each pair of photographs is accompanied by an extended caption that tells of the story of the child in question about Kaya in Tokyo whose proud mother spends $1000 per month on her dresses; about Bilal the Bedouin shepherd boy who sleeps out with his father’s herd of goats; about the Nepali girl Indira, who has worked in a granite quarry since she was three years old, and about Ankhohxet, the Kraho boy who sleeps on the floor of a hut deep in the Amazon jungle. Photographed over two years with the support of Save the Children, the book is written and presented for an audience of 7-11 year olds setting out to interest and engage children in the details of the lives of other children around the world, and the social issues affecting them, while also being a serious photographic essay for an adult audience. Its striking design features a childs mobile on the cover, printed in glow-in-the-dark ink.

I heard this song during the preparation for an okkervilriver concert last year. It was an old town hall and people were sitting on the floor waiting for the band to come on, the room was full of smoke.
