Campfire stories. Bedtime stories. Tall stories. It’s not often anyone over the age of eight gets to indulge in words read by someone else. That’s why we were enticed by this (ahem) subtly targeted advertising campaign by coffee brand Carte Noire. They’ve enlisted three good-looking actor types to read segments of famous literary works that you can watch online as a coffee break. They even start (albeit with a smirk) with the words “Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin”. This reminded Nicky of her Great Auntie Georgie, for whom she and her sister used to prepare a throne of fading cuddly toys and mismatched sheets as they eagerly awaited her arrival and those famous opening words.
Anorak also adores the folk tale theme of this interiors shoot in Living etc. It evokes an eclectic home perfect for snuggling up for a good story.
