Stylish Stokey!

We have some colleagues amongst us who'd argue they're the most stylish in the CIA office but they don't really live in Stoke Newington anymore, so surely Sarah our finance guru is in the lead? Sorry Ben. 

 

Jitesh Patel's recent hand drawn piece mapped out the fashion and style of one of our favourite neighbourhood's for Metropolitan Magazine. We think the composition in this right on the money!

Travelling Light

Jeff Fisher is famous for his unique painterly marks that create atsmosphere and texture. With such a timeless aesthetic it's no wonder he is so prolific in the publishing world. His latest cover is for campaigner, publisher and wanderer Alastair Sawday, who has spent his life travelling. En route he has unearthed a multitude of stories - stories of people ploughing their own furrows, of travellers' tales, stories from the 'front line' of his publishing, ruminations and reflections about places, people and ideas. In this deeply charming, erudite and spirited book, he shares his experiences and explores the value of travel. Published with Little, Brown
