Helen Frankenthaler

A friend and I were having a conversation last night about Helen Frankenthaler - a New York, colour field artist who was influential in the 1960's. She used to thin down her oil paints with turps to stain her canvases, creating really nice gradients between her colours. You can see more of her work and read about her here.

I was having a look around for nice screen-prints because of my course and I came across Matohu, who showed at Tokoyo Fashion Week, Spring 2010. I spent more time looking at the purple dyeing effects than the prints. Have to try it. Images via coolechicstylefashion. xxxx

Nice Cards and a library of old books

My friend Anna has started making clever, handpainted gift cards called 'Cards for complicated people' which are available on Etsy (images above). I also found a good graphics resource of historical book covers and design examples at Photobibliothek. The pics below have been sourced from there. xxxx
