Walpole - The Book of British Luxury

Tonight is the launch of at Walpole’s Book of British Luxury at Fortnum & Mason in London.  Walpole is the official sector body for UK luxury and counts more than 210 British brands in its membership.  As the voice of British luxury, Walpole’s purpose is to promote, protect and develop a sector worth £32.2 billion to the UK economy.

TB were invited to design a cover for the book a few months back.  Our aesthetic is an idiosyncratic take on pattern with a love of the printed image, and a healthy disdain for the 'twee' and 'mundane'.  We looked to reflect and celebrate British Luxury and Craftsmanship so we were inspired to create a heraldic shield.

“The initial drawing and sketching is my favourite part.... it’s the actual making that I find the hardest.”  Paul Simmons, Director at TB
