There's an artistic movement afoot that is very familiar to those of us who grew up in the 1950s and 1960s - but I can't think of a name for it. Modern British? Neo 1950s? Post-war Folk? Brave New English? The style reminds me of childhood favourites...
...and this design by Barnett Freedman, the cover of my school prize for Junior English (in 19-coughety-cough.)
New designers and artists have been inspired by this graphic style and made it their own - Angie Lewin, Jonny Hannah, Paul Bommer, Emily Sutton, Mark Hearld, Ed Kluz and more.
I have a cushion in this lovely printed fabric, Painswick by Ed Kluz.
Intriguingly, the menfolk of this artistic movement are usually dressed like the artisans of my childhood, courtesy of a unique bespoke workwear company, Old Town, based in Holt, Norfolk.
In York last week I was reminded of these shop front illustrations by Eric Ravilious...
... because the artist Mark Hearld has dressed a window in Modern British style.
Hasten to Plaskitt & Plaskitt, 6 Blossom Street, York to see this display...
...next door to Micklegate.
Artist's prints and other beautiful objects are also to be found at Hornsey's of Ripon, North Yorkshire.
