Housmans Bookshop – Bookmarks & Gift vouchers

The first two projects in an ongoing series of work with the radical booksellers in King ’s Cross , London. The bookmarks and vouchers coincide with their 70th anniversary and shop’s basement expansion . Artwork is a mix of archival and original imagery which link to Housmans roots within the peace movement . To reflect on their longevity we referenced the ever - changing Housmans dove with a short accompanying text on the back of each bookmark .
The vouchers are printed on distinctive recycled paper stock and adorned with a stamp to guarantee authenticity in the unlikely event of forgery .
Designed with Gareth Lindsay
Bookmarks 210 × 65mm, vouchers 70 × 140mm
