Post-Exam Presents

Exams are DONE, as are results for most people (hope everyone got what they wanted!), so some much needed arty rewards are needed… here’s what’s on my wish list, just a few beautiful bits and pieces to celebrate the end of the academic year with:

1. A Grady McFerrin Notebook
Grady McFerrin is a New York based illustrator who studied art at College and now makes a whole range of wonderfully designed pieces.
