Looking for a way to add a little London to your home? Check out Pottery Barn’s London sign, now on sale for $509. It’s a framed giclée print that can be special ordered.
London’s benches are becoming open books this summer, thanks to Britain’s National Literacy Trust, which has brought 50 new sculptures into the city, with help from public art promoter Wild in Art. Each bench celebrates a different story, ranging from C.S. Lewis’ “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” to Julia Davidson’s “The Gruffalo,” Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass” to J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan.”
Thanks, Ally, for the tip!
I love the idea of this book by the U.K.’s Marion Deuchars. “Let’s Make Some Great Placemat Art” is the perfect antidote for any child who’s bored sitting in a restaurant waiting for dinner to arrive (and a godsend to parents)!
What’s 14 feet high, ultramarine blue and standing on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square?
A giant cockerel, designed by German artist Katharina Fritsch!
The cock’s creator Katharina Fritsch told The Guardian newspaper: “I think the English have a great sense of humour. I know they like to play games with language. They like their double meanings. So I wanted to play around.”
I kind of like how blue and bright it is! What do you think?
I love this silk screen print by Nicola Meiring (£60), which is the first of a series of European prints. So retro and sweet!
