I’m back and helping the original blogging Hasi out today.
I went to the private view of an opening yesterday which was really interesting. It’s called “The Book of Everyone” and it is a lovely project run by a bunch of creatives. It’s personalised book-making at its best. The end product is a collections of beautiful illustrations and copy, filled with lots of trivia and quirky knowledge. The guy who researched the copy for the book “was born on the same day that Constantius III became the Emperor of Western Rome, but just a few years later.” His words, not mine. With little gems like that how can anybody say no to a book like this? I have to go back because it was really quite busy and I’d like to see the works again with more time (and less people).
If you’d like to find out more go to http://thebookofeveryone.com/.
I’m thinking of getting myself a book. Or maybe Hasi would like one?
I’m sure she’ll also enjoy this illustration by the amazing http://www.malikafavre.com/ who is one of the collaborators.
I love the use of flat colours and negative space. I went to see this show of hers a couple of years ago and I still think it’s amazing.
Afterwards we went to a sweet little pub which was playing great music. The Doors and Janis Joplin anyone? Great throwback to my teens that was.
It was a splendid evening.
