NEW Aardvark print

December 21, 2010

I was flicking through the very beautiful Lost in London the other day (order your copy asap – it’s already sold out in Selfridges!) and stumbled upon this exclusive letterpress print from Aardvark (the manifesto people) inside the front cover – featuring a quote from London, The Biography by Peter Ackroyd. Naturally, I cut it out, scanned it in to show you, then framed it in a flash. Check it out:

Isn’t it cool? Let’s have a look at the Pedlars manifesto, the V&A manifesto and Aarvark‘s other prints, too. Because it’s Christmas. By the way, congratulations to BETH CASTLE who won the fabulous We Make London giveaway prize draw. Happy Christmas, Beth! – Ellie

Just in case you don’t already have enough prints around your house with words and messages on them, check out this new limited-edition, exclusive design from Gail Bryson for Pedlars.

‘Keep calm and carry on’, ‘An apple a day’, ‘Every cloud has a silver lining’, ‘It’s what’s inside that counts’, ‘Tea revives you’, ‘Make do and mend’, ‘Eat your greens’, …these wordy poster slogans are everywhere now and nice and easy to understand. Now, perhaps I’m missing something here, but what exactly does this new Bryson print MEAN? ‘We’re not here because of gravity, we’re here because we like it.’ All very strange. But it’s a poster with words on it, so no doubt it’ll sell like hot cakes anyway. – Ellie
