The affordable art fair has come and gone. All the big jobs are complete and a nice calm has descended upon the workshop. I love this quote from John Cage. I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY AND I'M SAYING IT...

Yes, I have some prints at the affordable art fair - a fun idea of Hobby's was the photo booth.
You can take a print in with you and have you picture taken with it - and then buy a print.
Have a look at Tag Fine Arts facebook page to see all the uploads of people and their prints.

Part of my new collection of bags, scarves and T shirts. Each bag features the name and address of a well known type foundry followed by the dates they were in business. This bag (all the bags are hand made with heavy weight canvas) features Stephenson Blake, one of the last remaining type foundries (together with DeLittle of York). These bags will be available in Japan and in the UK from the Design Museum and PRESENT (Shoreditch High Street).

This wonderful wood type arrived from the USA last week - no sooner was it unpacked then it was straight to work. The original design for this font dates back to 1838. Yet it looks so incredibly fresh and contemporary. I designed a bag for the up coming (starts November 2011) CONRAN exhibition at the Design Museum last week and then used this font for a fun poster (it was just for me, it won't be on sale at the design museum), it's a real joy to print with.
