BOOK - the collier campbell archive

I am so lucky to be the owner of the new 'Collier Campbell Archive' book. I have had it on my wishlist for some time but until it arrived this week I didn't quite realise just how big it would be. Measuring 12 inches square and over and inch thick it really is a fantastic quality publication. Drawing from the vast archives of the design sisters Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell it features around 900 illustrations of their pattern designs, sketchbooks, and their studio. Written by Emma Shackleton (with Sarah Campbell) it also has forewards by Sir Nicholas Serota and Sir Terence Conran. As a designer you will be thoroughly inspired by this book to get creating, and will be amazed how some of their archive designs look incredibly current. Published by Ilex press you can get it here on amazon UK or amazon USA.
