This month we have...

'Fancy a brew' by Alice Melvin

A beautiful screen printed book that 'endeavours to teach the secret of a good brew in 8 easy steps', and comes complete with free tea bag! Alice's website is well worth a look to as there's lots more gorgeous illustration, books and design.

Cavallini Press Stationery
A brand new range for Firecatcher from the US, including beautiful journals, postcards, stickers and erasers.

'The Great Paper Caper' by Oliver Jeffers
One of my favourite illustrator/authors, Oliver Jeffers' new book is just as great as his previous ones. His unique style combines quirky illustration with a wry sense of humour and a great story.

October Window

Window design at Firecatcher has become a bit of a tradition which started with our Harry Potter window (see archive!) and has continued with us trying to out do the previous! We use the space as more of an art installation than a promotional area and as well as our own designs have had other artist's using the window as an exhibition space.

For this Autumn's window we decided to go gothic to tie in with Halloween and one of our favourite books 'Twilight' by Stephenie Meyer. We've been pretty much hooked (and slightly obsessed!) with the Twilight saga and when planning the window this time around thought it would be a good way to spread the word and create something dark and striking at the same time.

The nature of the window means the photo's are quite dark but the main essence of the design uses a black, red and white theme with eight beautiful roses hung equal distance apart to create a quite graphic look. 'Wickedly Wonderful' is written in black vinyl lettering across the top, with 'Go Gothic this Autumn' below. The idea with the roses was that they would gradually wilt and die giving that dark feel.
