Letterpressed at the London Centre for Book Arts.
At the end of last year I put up the display of the calligraphy quote pieces I’d been working on for my company.
I’d asked colleagues to send me their favourite quotes, which I then composed in my calligraphy class for final display on the wall in the office.
Here are some quick pics:
The Buchstaben Museum
The Bauhaus Archiv
At the beginning of this year I started studying calligraphy again, and here are a few pictures of the pieces I worked on. The black and yellow piece was for a friend, and the blue, a series to go on a wall at work. I’ve yet to put this up on the wall – watch this space for the final installation.
Jardin de la Connaissance in Quebec, designed by Berlin landscape architect Thilo Folkerts and Canadian artist Rodney LaTourelle.
Beautiful and upsetting at the same time.
Amazing nature. Poor books.
A fantastic and beautiful film – and why I love type, design and art.
I started May with a visit to the Bauhaus exhibition at the Barbican, and have finished with a trip to the National Trust’s 2 Willow Road in Hampstead – the site of Ernő Goldfinger’s modernist house. Both are fantastic and well worth a visit.
I knew my Grandma collected tea towels, but when I asked her this weekend if she had any spare, I hadn’t realised just how many she had accumulated over the years – hundreds… In her words: “They are an inexpensive souvenir, practical and easy to store.” How wonderful, and very northern.
The result is an amazing, nostalgic, visual assortment of holiday destinations, towns, counties, National Parks, walks, dogs, food, drink, cooking, charity, history…
I’ll be adding pictures of them here as my friend and I start using them for their intended purpose in our new flat, and from now, I’ll be starting a collection of my own.
(And what better one to begin with than Lancashire…)
