Yep, our favourite seafront gallery has screenprints from the king of tiki style, illustrator Derek Yaniger for you to eyeball until 11th July.
His prints ooze retro 50s loveliness and burst with energy, so swing by cool cats and take a gandar!
British artist David Shrigley has transformed the Gallery restaurant in London's iconic Sketch to house the largest collection of his original illustrations ever to be exhibited.
Since 2002 Sketch has hosted over fifty exhibits and installations from internationally renowned artists. It's always a wonderfully quirky place to eat and now there's a new reason to pop in for lunch or afternoon tea.
The new David Shrigley works - 239 of them are based on, "the grand themes of life, death and beyond" are intended as talking points for diners. But the exhibition isn't restricted to the walls, "the meal itself becomes a site-specific sculptural work that references sketch’s location in the heart of London’s West End" with a unique collection of Shrigley-illustrated, ceramic tableware manufactured by Caverswall.
Sketch is at 9 Conduit Street, London W1S 2XG, I promise you won't be diappointed and be sure to visit the loos!
More fabulous auto lettering and emblems.
Show season is upon us again so the auto type will be coming thick and fast over the next few months.
In this lovely bunch we have some 1940s and 1950s Americana alongside some very rare German loveliness. If only they all belonged to me!
You can see our ever-growing collection of Auto Type here.
A selection of our greetings cards and prints will soon be available from Brixton's Studio 73. In fact, they are winging their way over there as we speak.
Studio 73 is a gallery and framing studio in Brixton Village run by Adrian Flower. They have a great selection of print for sale and we're happy to be in the company of our Brighton buddies, Hello Dodo and fellow Pick Me Up 2014 designers, Sort letterpress studio and Catherine McGinniss!
Lots more new stockist news to come, so watch this space!

#144 - Shell promotional card, circa 1950s. Another gem from Paris.
It's advertising Shell's portfolio of products; so as well as the obvious petrol and oil, they supplied fuel oil, chemicals, insecticides and bitumen (asphalt).
I love everything about this little card; the colours, the pulpy uncoated stock that the ink has sunk into, the illustrations, the way the shading has been illustrated and the way they left the 'S' of Shell under the black layer of print to make it slightly darker too. The type and illustrations remind me of the instructional and educational charts from the same era. Shame I don't know who the illustrator/designer was.
Have a dig around in our reference box for more delicious ephemera...
