I love it when, occasionally browsing away on the internet, I stumble across the work of a photographer, illustrator, cook or creative person that I really admire. This very thing happened to me when perusing the catalogue of exhibitors for the Top Drawer fair at Earls Court, which sadly I wasn’t able to go to due to finding out about it with too little notice – the peril of having your head in a bag of flour most of the time – you miss things! Some of my favourite Nordic design companies were there, such as Ferm Living, Marimekko and iittala, and I would have loved to see all their new collections of no doubt very lovely things!
Amongst the designers that I already knew, was James Brown who illustrates under the name General Pattern. I love his style! Especially this print (which is available in his shop) called ‘Bakery’. I’m sure we’ll be spending some of our hard earned bread delivery money on his prints in the near future!
