My not-so-little-anymore brother Miles is coming down to Brighton to see me today! Very excited because I haven't seen him since my birthday in January.

cross stitch!

Another little hobby of mine. I love cross stitch, especially silly decorative letters like this. I'm finishing of a quilt my grandma started 40 years ago, and it's inspired me to start one of my own which is already featuring quite a bit of this lettering. Hope it doesn't take 40 years and 2 generations to finish though!

Eager Beaver

I love this photo. It says happy camper all over it. Wish I could summon a smile like that in the face of the mountains of work I have to do!

This is just a little something that I did in letterpress a while ago. I love the Gill sans O and the letterpress has a whole load of wood cut type in Gill. The o in the middle is Caslon, also wood and also beautiful. I love all the imperfections in wood type.

One of my favourite collections is old photos. Snooper's Paradise is the best place to go for this, if you don't mind sifting through thousands of photos. This is one of my recent finds on an epic 2 hour photo binge. I like collecting portraits and misprints. I wonder if Ken is still alive?
