tatouage: blossom* | tatouage: wild* – £12.99

tatouage, both ‘blossom’ and ‘wild’ are books of mini prints, and temporary tattoos. within ‘blossom’ is floral and botanical imagery, and in ‘wild’, there are sea creatures, birds, butterflies and more. both contain over 100 beautifully drawn and coloured temporary tattoos.

i really like creative books that have this sort of interactive element to them. you can keep them as is, or you can cut out and use the tattoos, give them to friends, and put up the prints around your home. they’d also make lovely little presents.

print and pattern nature book review

print & pattern nature* – £19.99

if ever there was a book made for me, it’s this. full of colourful nature based patterns by various creatives, print and pattern: nature is a pattern lovers dream. this is the latest in the print & pattern series of books, previous ones include geometric and kids. it has the same layout as the previous books, with the initialled headings (in squared diamonds in this instance), brief bio and a page or two showing the work of the artists. as before, there’s a mix of quarter and full page pieces, so there’s a bit of visual variety when you’re flicking through.
