Habitually Chic Book of the Week


If there is one book that is prized above all others for it's beautiful cover, it's Osa Johnson's I Married Adventure. It's part of my library above and is often styled for magazine shoots like the Vogue photo montage below.

Besides being chic and pretty, it's actually a great read! Martin and Osa Johnson lived an extraordinary life of travel and adventure that is still to this day inspriring. Just recently, American Eagle launched a clothing line called Martin + Osa, based on their fearless exploration.

I found my copy of I Married Adventure from a book dealer but there are always editions to be had on eBay. Get your copy today and be inspired!

I enjoyed your blog entry about I Married Adventure. As a former trustee of the Safari Museum and frequent reader of "shelter" magazines, I often notice IMA in photos of decorated rooms, usually placed at a distance from any spot where someone could actually READ. However, the newest edition of House and Garden on page 30 indicates that we will be seeing fewer of these books, as it is listed as OUT of fashion now! LOL

Thanks Virginia for your lovely comment. I only own books that I have actually read and enjoy so if they happpen to be pretty as well, I consider it a bonus! I just think it's funny that there are so many books that get "styled" into photo shoots.
