We just wanted to give you a quick, little preview of some of the art and design books that have arrived from publishers in the past couple of weeks. We’ve got a few other blog posts already in the pipeline, but the next Bookmarks review won’t be far off!

We bought this vintage marble game last week. It’s a simple little game which involves rolling marbles down the wooden shoot aiming at archways with different scores. We’ve done a little research and found that the game is called “bridgeboard”.
What makes this version extra special are the fabulous illustations by Kenneth Townsend.
The animals will look very familiar to fans of the artist’s “Menagerie” tile series that we’ve blogged about before.
We’ve been having a bit of a spring clean this week. We’re letting go of a few things – one of the first things is this collection of Wallpaper* Magazines.
The group consists of the very rare and covetable launch edition and the following fourteen issues – they span late 1996 to late 1998.
They’re currently up for sale as a single lot on eBay!
Long-time followers of our blog will know that we love the art of Charley Harper. This one, entitled ‘Octoberama’ is one of our favourites!
He was very prolific and his work can be found as originals artworks, prints, books, calendars, stationery, mouse mats… the list goes on & on. All of which can be bought from either the Charley Harper estate website or Amazon UK or USA.
