Loose Threads

Sat, 03 Mar 2018 13:23:38 +0000

I'm just putting these here. I've sold a couple, without trying but one day I'd like to get them out there and see if anyone's interested. Personally, I love them, which is the best place to start. Watercolour with cotton...

Kickstarting Dwiggins

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 11:58:15 +0100

W. A. Dwiggins (1880—1956) was one of the pioneers of American graphic design. A skilled calligrapher, type designer, printer and illustrator, he was a major force in print design in the early half of the twentieth century. He's one of...

Is that Switzerland in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?

Sat, 04 Feb 2017 15:43:06 +0000

My interest in cartography intensifies inline with the concentration of cartography. Sheets are lovely but an atlas! With an atlas comes a frenzy of map-joy. And a pocket guide! A small, maption-packed book…with cloth-bound, foil-blocked cover…and a plethora of tipped-in...

An interpretation of the Marber Grid in thread and map pins


Sat, 19 Nov 2016 17:06:16 +0000

I can’t tell you very much about Hans Thoni except that he died in 1980 aged 74 and was a Swiss graphic designer. There are a few of his posters online and some stamps he designed. There’s much more online...

Floral Tribute

Sat, 12 Nov 2016 17:37:44 +0000

Between the years of 1876 and 1890 Justus Oehler's great-grandmother Agnes Leibbrand made 42 flower pressings which she kept in a decorative envelope box and which, after her death, remained hidden away, as if forgotten in a drawer, waiting to...

Episode 1: A Potter I'm not a fan of The Potter. Too derivative for me. But I know, I concede, I’m in the minority; I certainly am in our household. I’m not sure what the dog thinks but everyone else...

It's a good idea, not nostalgia.

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 20:45:01 +0100

Can we stop referring to the Co-op “re-brand” as nostalgic please? It’s a shallow response to a well considered solution. If we hadn’t seen that mark before, would we think it retro? Just look at it! I would suggest that...

Depero Futurista

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 20:12:00 +0100

I just got an email from Russell from Designers & Books. In October they launch a Kickstarter to re-publish Depero's Bolted Book. So, nothing really important then. (Oh my god! They want to re-publish the Bolted Book!). More here.

Europe in Maps

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 20:13:00 +0100

Here's real treasure for the map fiend: A topographical study of the region known as Europe. I remember Europe – some of it is just below us and there's a much bigger bit over on the other side of the...

Man v Robot

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 15:59:38 +0100

To summarise Marty Neumeier’s 2013 book Metaskills: when the robots rise up to conquer, our only hope, our last line of defence, will be to hit them good and hard with a hefty dose of creativity. It’s our last chance,...

Over 900 Years Tall

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:52:30 +0100

In the May 6 edition of Daniel Benneworth-Gray’s Meanwhile (you do subscribe to Meanwhile don’t you?) he featured Jan Tschichold’s The Form of the Book. Amongst the details Daniel drew out of that was what Jan said about “Deviant formats”...

Getting under your feet

Sat, 21 May 2016 17:33:56 +0100

The latest (and over-sized) Pentagram Paper is a celebration of the ignored; ever-present but invisible to many, the ubiquitous maintenance cover is a hatch to a world below our feet that our feet will never explore. The paper is a...

Back in The 'Ham

Tue, 17 May 2016 23:53:56 +0100

I was over in my old stomping ground the other week, seeing my Mum who wasn't too well, and I managed to squeeze in a conflab with that man Luke Tonge, off of the Internet and the Monotype Recorder and...

Night and Day

Sun, 15 May 2016 20:16:52 +0100

Back in the day, agency types would have to defend apparent wasted space on a layout by claiming that it “illuminated the message”. Maybe they still do. No false claim though, we all know that what you leave out is...

"The little typographical adventure…"

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 23:31:19 +0100

That’s how William Morris pitched his, long-time pondered printing enterprise some time after 1888. Finally tipped over the edge by an inspiring lecture to the Arts and Crafts Exhibition in November that year, our hairy faced friend gathered around him...

The Penrose Annual 1976 Volume 69

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 08:11:37 +0100

For most of my Penrose Annual collecting career, to date, I've concentrated on the 60s. But I've come to realise the following decade has lots to offer. As phototypesetting took hold, memories of letterpress-as-standard still prevailed and also the 70s...

Sensations of London

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 09:22:00 +0000

Three things converged recently… We went to London to start with. Haven’t been for ages and it was so good to be back, wandering around the city. Hope to be there again in the summer. Then I began to read...

Catch of the Day

Sat, 12 Mar 2016 14:17:27 +0000

Not bad for an amateur: reeled in a one pound Bass…of the Saul variety.

A Shallow and Wholly Inadequate Survey of Classical Record Cover Design between 1959 and 1982

Sat, 05 Mar 2016 17:06:03 +0000

When it comes to vinyl, jazz is my first love. With the exception of one or two important album’s of a more contemporary genre from my youth, it was the jazz LPs I kept at that time when the medium...
