The Collection

Conde Nast Traveler feature

by Adrian on 10/08/2010

I appeared as one of the “Obsessed” collectors in the February 2010 issue of Conde Nast Traveller, stumbling over piles of the stamps. I can assure you that the stamps are not normaly treated that way but it did make a splendid image!

I was delighted to be asked to write about my collection in issue 5 of Canadian typography magazine, Uppercase

I also have a 5 page spread in the current issue of London based textile magazine, Selvedge.

Both of the editors learned about my collection from a lecture I gave in January at the Tye Directors’ Club in NYC

I am always happy to share my images and research with those who want to help publicize this previously ignored area of design and brand history. I have appeared as a special guest on the Antiques Roadshow and have lectured to design students, using the story of Victorian merchant branding to better understand the importance of good design.
