Not strickly print or wallpaper but I went to the Few and Far (run by Priscilla Carluccio - wife of restaurateur Antonio and younger sister of Terence Conran) late night opening during London Design festival - It was so gorgeous I had to post it.

I am back from my travels and I was lucky enough to go to the Basso and Brooke show for London fashion week yesterday. Here is the luscious invitation. The collection was based on Japanese prints which were simply exquisite.

A must see exhibition for anyone who likes printmaking. (and it's free !)

I love this described as "cubo-futurist" style print.

Here's an Edward Hopper etching - I never know he did printmaking. Also there's an early Pollock that's about as far from his action paintings as possible - worth seeing alone. It just goes to show we all have different styles in us.

My obsession with old style show fronts continues :-
Not to give too much away but I was at the umbrella shop to purchase my fancy dress outfit for Bestival (festival on the isle of Wright) this weekend - the theme is 10,000 freaks under the sea. Pictures to come. I also went and stock piled up on Polaroid film as it is going out of production at the end of this year - so get out and buy some now while you still can !
