Just a selection of some of my favourites from Solo. Solo is ‘a sort of diary about doing things in London’ by Lizzy Stewart.

I’ve been following her tumblr for quite some time now, and thought I should share, because its pretty special. I love how she captures such ordinary, fleeting moments with clarity.

Paper Plates is a summer Olympics-themed spread from Vogue UK. I’m blown away by the inventive use of papercraft by set designer Shona Heath. View the spread in greater detail here.

Art, Design, Stuff I Bought

By Little Ghost

There is something so indescribably awesome about receiving something in the mail. Even if you order it yourself online, and you know its coming! The feeling is still there. Maybe for me it’s because I’m packaging obsessed, so all the little bits, bobs, stickers and handwriting fascinate me? Par example:


I ordered two prints from Karolin Schnoor. A screenprinted poster, and a little screenprinted card. I’m super pleased with the prints, but more than anything, I’m really enjoying the attention to detail, and the effort that has gone into this shipment. Like the awesome handwriting above, and that branding on the postal tube. To this business card that came with the greeting card…

It’s so simple and so inspiring. I’ve been doing research into printing my own set of cards, but the costs have so far been prohibitive. This is printed in one color and loses nothing in terms of impact.

But wait, there’s more! Have a look at this sweet thank-you that was slipped into the poster tube.

I mean, how awesome is that? Details, people, details. But I’m waffling. Let’s move on to the meat of the post – the actual prints. The little greeting card is now happily residing in a simple frame I had lying around.

Hmmm, that’s more like it. That my friends, is pretty much perfect as far as I’m concerned. And the poster, you ask? (Types the author knowing full well no one has indeed asked anything of the sort) Well here it is. That’s as much as I can show you for now. I’m going to leave it to my framers to straighten it out, as it is much too pretty to crease up!

If you’re interested in getting in on any of this pretty action, visit Karolin Schnoor’s Etsy here. Beautiful, handmade products plus excellent customer service and attention to detail. Can’t recommend it enough!

I can’t wait for my Steve Morris skeleton scarf to arrive! I ordered it from Topshop UK, so I’m still sitting around a week later waiting for it to arrive. Ah the joys of living in South Africa at the ass-end of the world! Sweet anticipation! I had to (albeit willingly) top up my order to £75 to qualify for the free shipping. So along with the scarf I am also waiting for some leather pumps, a cute skirt, some cute makeup, a neat belt and some awesome scallop tights. Thats quite the haul! But I still maintain I did it all for the scarf!

Its on the fairly pricy side for me, but it is after all silk. This is my way of tiding over my obsession until I manage to order a whole set of the Butterbroda prints.

Morris is by far my favourite artist of the moment. Its like discovering someone elsewhere in the world who’s work completely encompasses my ideal aesthetic – in colour, style and subject matter. Thats magic, that is. Thank you Internet!
