Oslo-based design studios StokkeAustad & Andreas Engesvik have collaborated for a second time. On this occasion they’ve created “The Woods”, a beautiful glass sculpture inspired by the forests & lights of the north. Made from hand blown glass, each sculpture consists of seven trees – joined in two separate sections… Just exquisite!
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.
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.
