Mythical Beasts


I received this gorgeous print of Mythical Beasts from my brother and sister in law this Christmas by Vancouver- based artists Sarah Edmonds and Tammy Lawrence from their studio Banquet Atelier & Workshop and thought it was too good not to share.

“Banquet Atelier & Workshop is a Vancouver-based studio engaged in creating quality goods celebrating the natural world and the animals that inhabit it: water birds, northern wildlife, forest creatures and under the sea. Partners Sarah Edmonds and Tammy Lawrence share an eye for bold and playful imagery.

I love them all and have my fingers crossed that they might produce a dinosaur print some day… or even better, fabric!!


Sam Weber, Lord of The Flies

William Golding’s Lord of The Flies, illustrated by Brooklyn based Sam Weber. A classic story with contemporary illustration. Illustrations done with the darkness and vulnerability that the story deserves and not to mention they are so  beautifully satisfying. Shame the copy I had at school (below) wasn’t quite so bold. Although defaced I still think it’s a sweet cover, I don’t think I’d go defacing Sam Weber’s edition though.
