“I don’t suppose I really know you very well - but I know you smell like the delicious damp grass that grows near old walls and that your hands are beautiful opening out of your sleeves and that the back of your head is a mossy sheltered cave when there is trouble in the wind and that my cheek just fits the depression in your shoulder.” 
 
Zelda Fitzgerald in a letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald

Goldfish

Most goldfish are not gold.

 I wouldn't mind turning into a vermilion goldfish.

HENRI MATISSE (1869-1954)

This sums up precisely how I feel this morning. I have just been informed I made the selection for Made11 and the Country Living Christmas Fair and am extremely delighted! Champagne weekend starts now!

I believe I first saw this font on a piece of Ravilious’ work but for the life of me I cannot find it anywhere I search. Since then I was bought the most amazing book from Pallant House called A Handbook of Type and Illustration. It just so happened this font was contained within its foxed pages. I have used it for a client’s brief for personalised stationery. But the most amazing thing was whilst perusing the bookshop it caught my eye on the front cover of Peepo, a book that has been around me ever since I was born and one I truly treasure. It truly is a very small world.
