In celebration of

Ivan Leitch

 

Sir Leonard Blavatnik is a Soviet-born British-American businessman, investor, and philanthropist. 

We made this slipcover for ‘The Courtauld Institute of Art’ who presented it to Sir Leonard and Lady Blavatnik in celebration of the Blavatnik family’s support of Courtauld Connects and the rejuvenation of the Fine Rooms at Somerset House.

The books, “A treatise on the Decorative Part of Civil Architecture Volumes I & II” describe the qualifications and duties of an architect and contains drawings and information about Somerset House from 1825.

We produced the cover using black Colorado book cloth, lined with GF smith colorplan -  bitter chocolate with a gold foil.

Laura Berger - Fall In

Ivan Leitch

 

Laura Berger is an artist that uses her art to induce time with movement, inserting the reality of the moment with playful innocence and connection to optimism. Her fem-centric work is curious and whimsical, a type of voice that is calming and easy to listen too, all while delicately commenting on female cultural idioms and society ideals. 

Clients include: 

The New York Times, Vans, The Ace Hotel, In Style Magazine, Marie Claire, Faber & Faber, Lemon Design, Cuyana, Spirituality & Health Magazine and Bitch Magazine.

The first book from C.C. Edmonston
https://www.ccedmonston.com

A fantastic read with many twist and turns that you don't see coming. Very well written and hard to put down. Buy your copy of this twisted, gothic tale of blood and betrayal to discover what secrets entwine these tangled, lost souls like the threads of a hangman's halter.

Notorious highwayman Samuel Shanklin is stretching his luck while the noose of Tyburn gallows threatens to stretch his neck. But one final robbery before he hangs up his pistols puts him on a slippery path with the woman of his dreams ... who may just prove to be the stuff of nightmares. With his gang turning against him and his family unraveling like the stitches on a stolen purse, Shanklin must fight to swing the odds in his favour before he winds up swinging from the wrong end of a rope.
