Today I would like to introduce you to one of my favourite illustrators and designers, the very talented Alice Melvin. I first came across Alice’s designs at Tate Britain where I always get sucked into the children section and find the best edit of books and craft materials ever.
One of her clever projects is a map and guide of the Scottish capital, where she is based, not only it takes you to the best spots of Edinburgh but it also allows you to make handy notes and mementos.
Alice’s Aviary is a series of 12 screen prints of British Birds and I would just love to own the green woodpecker or the barn owl.
These two craft projects are going right to the top of my list of Christmas gifts for little girls, how fantastic are the glove puppets and the department store?
If that wasn’t enough Alice also writes books, designs stationery and bird mobiles.
