New month...

7 May 04

…new picture. I took this month’s photo while I was in London recently, during my visit to the Vivienne Westwood exhibition at the V&A.

The thing is, there I was in a fantastic exhibition full of important stuff (well, important if you’re even slightly interested in fashion, music, culture or anything at all), and all I could think was “Look! I work for a company that buys tartan from the same company as her!”. So geeky I know…

Speaking of geeky, the V&A logo is one of my favourite ever pieces of typography, done by the late Herb Lubalin. Can anyone find an image of his ‘Mother & Child’ logo anywhere on the web?

Is this what you’re after Alex? Mother & Child

Marvellous! That’s the one, thanks Robin :-) Good isn’t it?

I hereby accuse you of making up names like “Robin” to make others think there are helpful others who read your infrequent gibber.

Huh. Coming from the same IP that just posted music recommendations in another thread…
