Since the start of the year, I’ve tried to post three times a week. I’m going to have the next week off, simply to give myself some headroom.
Last week’s something for the weekend resulted in me browsing People Will Always Need Plates’ site. I hope I am not alone in loving this relatively new design of Birmingham New Street’s Signal Box. Like anyone who grew up in the Midlands in the 70s, I have a curious fondness for the city’s more brutalist elements. This building, seen from the rail side, always indicated we were arriving at the big city. One for architecture/rail fans…
- New Street Signal Box print is available from PWANP’s shop
At some point I’ll feature one of my absolute favourite children’s illustrators, Oliver Jeffers. Until then, I can assure you that this print by Littleghosts is in a similar vein: hauntingly simple and just the right level of surreal.
- The Architecture of Dreams is available from Littleghosts’s etsy shop
Yet another Friday post with no named designer! This teal design borrows more than a little from People Will Always Need Plates, although the original police box design will belong to the Met. Still, in Doctor Who’s fiftieth (yes, fiftieth) year, you can probably forgive the BBC for getting a bit enthusiastic. Mugs, aprons, tea towels and so on are all also available in the same style…
- the TARDIS teapot is available through the BBC Home shop
