Great Looking Stories

Our very own bookshelf

b-20

Very kindly donated to the VE studio, by Birch Studio, ex-typography students from London College of Communication.

James and Elliot had designed this palette bookshelf while studying typography. I saw the bookshelf lying around in the studio one day and asked what they were planning on doing it with when they left college. They shrugged their shoulders and said, “I dunno know.”

So I asked if we could have it.

But of course I didn’t think about how they could or would bring it to the studio. They ended up walking it, using a trolley, from Elephant and Castle to Marble Arch. For those of you who don’t live in London, it’s not very close. It took them about 3 hours to get it here. I took them out for a mint lemonade as a thank you.
