V&A Shop

Whenever I'm in London I try to get to the V&A, even if it is just for the shop. There is always something quirky and interesting in there even if it's just a postcard. At the moment I am loving the V&A Print shop. They sell everything from Rob Ryan Laser cut prints to Black and white photos of fifties screen stars such as Grace Kelly.

This print is of the Small Hours furnishing fabric by Lucienne Day for Heals from 1953.
This is a photograph of Grace Kelly taken by Clarence Sinclair Bull, 1956. I love the simplicity of this photo.

This print is titled 'Pattern' by  Nina Chakrabarti for the V&A Cherry on the Cake: Paper Collection. This print incorporates the current trend for patchwork but with the twist of modern patterning.
Here we have Relais, from Quinze planches donnant quarante-deux motifs d√©coratifs by Edouard Benedictus, 1930. The colour combinations in this print are wonderful, would love a room decorated in these tones.
I love this 'Make Do and Mend' print by Bold & Noble. It's so simple but that's what makes it perfect!
And of course, how could we forget the wonderful Rob Ryan laser cut.
So as you can see the V&A offer a print to suit every taste. So next time your in London pop into the museum shop or get browsing.
