Having finally got all of our stuff out of storage and unpacked all the boxes back into our place in Glasgow I was handed this wonderful collection of books/prints from my parents who let me have all of my designer buys and freebies sent to their place over the course of the last year. I had forgotten I had even bought most of the stuff, it was like Christmas in August when this little lot arrived… now to find a place for it all, hmm! Special thanks to Hey Days, Counter-Print, Its Nice That and Chris Clarke for some lovely freebies!
