Photo from @thelittlebookroom. The sight of these new penguin Shakespeare’s reminds me of near the end of the film “An education” where Lynn Barber goes to have coffee with her former teacher and realised the fulfilment available in black spine penguin classic paperback style and postcards tacked to the wall. Yes!
Another print by Molly Mahon, channelling Charleston vibes.

I’m dreaming about day trips to Paris right now – no 1 to see this place, the Maison Louis Carre built by Aalvar Alto; no 2 to visit the Brancusi atelier (which sounds like it might be similar to this and also the Burberry / Henry Moore exhibition); and no 3 to see the new display of black models in French art.
If you like Meera Sethi and/or remember these playing cards by Sarah Ferone, you’ll also like Dilrani Kaur’s though provoking and witty work.
As well as her own take on the playing card deck (which comeback as either prints or t-shirts and jumpers) and the out of this world tiger sneakers, Dilrani also takes vintage Vogue covers and adapts them for an Indian viewer. Her website is here.
