Kate Miss

i thought i’d give you a little update on what the multitalented designer and thing-maker Kate Miss has been up to! a new jewellery collection and a bunch of prints, that’s what. and even though she doesn’t blog like she used to, her music mixes are still stellar.

Penguin Design

Penguin by Design

i just got sucked deep into the Penguin by Design tumblr (which is run by Penguin). there are some fascinating interviews with artists who have created their book covers – mostly done by hand. which, in a digital age, is so great to see! i love the Bill Bryson covers by illustrator Neil Gower (i actually…

Cacti1

Cacti Coasters

i never appreciated coasters until i became an adult. as a kid they were as ubiquitous in my parent’s house as ashtrays (even though neither of my parents smoker – why is that?) but i never bothered to use them because i was just a terrible child – as all terrible…

Flora

at first glance i couldn’t quite figure out what Flora was – did they make really cool plastic plants? that would be a novel idea. but no, they make really cool posters of plants. if you have a habit of killing plants or if you want to send someone a…
