Collecting some ace Romek Marber book covers as starting points for some new work. These are for Penguin, done in the early 60's........

Trying to find an anthology of Alvin Lustig, in book form. Considering all his graphic design work, his typefaces, and to me, his textiles, its pretty amazing there seems to be no collection of his work, in book form anyway. There's a good website in his name though, Better than Lucienne Day.........

Half done drawing- evolving into printed textile pattern, start of new work looking at line, scale and colour. Hopefully look different once printed, to my MA work. That's the aim anyway.....

Sunday, 7 February 2010


Trying to find funding, and locations for some new textile prints in situ- on the hillsides, in the eco-hotel, and in the disused barns of the North. The glacial features of mountains, rock climbing clubs, "Clouds" by R+E Bouroullec, Grizedale Arts, Shirley Craven, and old-fashioned climbing gear all serve as influences. Textile designs hopefully done in the next month......
