Creative minds we don't want to miss
Renowned photographers, stylists, illustrators, writers, product designers and many more smart and creative minds enrich our magazines Luna, Luna mum and Luna Journal as contributors constantly. We hereby would like to thank them for their inspiring work and would like to take the chance to introduce some of them to you.
Francesca Bartoli loves children’s fashion. That this scene has developed so quick and versatile makes the stylist very happy. With her feeling for colours and textiles she already styled for labels such as Mini Boden or Ted Baker. In Luna mum 23 the photographer provides with her baby photo gallery that chubby faced babies meet origami beings and that strong colours can be merged with knitwear, plaids and linen. Bartoli is mother of two children.

Does the creativity of Kai Lüftners have a limit? After books as “Das Kaff der guten Hoffnung”(2014) and brilliant music albums, thrilling audio books or funny concerts the all-rounder has now published the creepy book “Die Finsternis”. It’s getting spooky and maybe the parents should not read it, as it’s too scary for them. Other than Lüftner and his small fans because they are bullies which are not to frighten.
For Little Luna 58 the author gives exclusive author tips for those who want to write their first own book.

Tjitske van Leeuwen
At 25 degrees outside temperature beginning of September it’s already hart to get in a Christmas mood. The photographer Tjiske van Leeuwen at least put a filter over the photo so that the setup with Anne van der Meulen and Tilly Hazenberg looks more winterly. The wonderful winter wonderland that the trio has created can be admired in Luna 59 starting on page 92.
