Danny's Lot by Jocko Weyland featured in Vice Magazine

By Jonathan Smith

"If you lived in New York City in 2009, you remember the stories about the "dumpster pools" set up in an undisclosed lot somewhere in Gowanus, Brooklyn. They were the stuff of legend. New York in the summer is basically a crematory made out of asphalt and trash, so when rumors of an oasis amid the warehouses in south Brooklyn began to circulate, things escalated quickly. The now-defunct DIY magazine ReadyMade broke the dumpster pool story but withheld the location in a nice attempt at keeping the small space under wraps. After ricocheting around the Brooklyn blogosphere for a couple...

Dashwood Books in VOGUE

Wednesday February 25, 2015

To coincide with the launch of the Directory—a superselective guide of where to shop, eat, and prettify oneself in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, London, Milan, and Shanghai—Vogue.com Contributing Editor Rebecca Bengal pays tribute to New York’s Dashwood Books.

Let us now praise the basements, nooks, crannies, and narrow spaces of the East Village, whose architecture has preserved the physical and metaphoric underground of New York, making possible the continued existence of some of the city’s most idiosyncratic shops: tiny stores devoted entirely to selling only vintage guitars, or custom hats, or cappuccinos and tattoos, or Japanese toys, or Mexican handcraft, or...

Scugnizzi by Brett Lloyd featured in Heart Magazine

Monday January 19, 2015

Écrasée par l’hégémonie touristique de Rome ou Venise, la ville de Naples reste pourtant l’une des plus intrigantes cités de la Grande Botte. Suivant les traces des Napolitains et de leur hédonisme vibrant, le photographe Brett Lloyd immortalise cette communauté décomplexée et pleine de vie, pourtant touchée de plein fouet par la pauvreté, dans le livre Scugnizzi, A summer in Naples (Dashwood Books). Échouées sur les plages pour savourer quelques instants de quiétude éphémère, ces silhouettes ont presque des airs de compositions picturales bien au delà du reportage sociologique. Après avoir passé deux étés parmi ces « Scugnizzi » (ces Street Kids), Brett Lloyd déclare avoir...
