things i like


I like museums, books, toys, illustration, music, technology, design, ephemera and magazines. I’m really very interested in the history of design, shops, craft and fashion. I studied shop design and shop display to MPhil level at the RCA. I write about all these things on my blog Shelf Appeal.

I collect paper-y stuff; books and ephemera. Particularly from the 1930s to the 1950s. And I collect contemporary things too. Particularly things that have great illustrations on them.

I also like taking pictures, often in museums. Often pictures of dioramas and toys. I put most of them on Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.

So I suppose you could say work and play often intertwine.
