willy mason – carry on

Wednesday marked my 32nd birthday and to celebrate we went to see the amazing Willy Mason at Scala. The gig was the last night of his headline tour and to launch his latest album, Carry On. He played a set of old and new songs with lots of audience participation – I had a brilliant night!

On sale at the gig were not your usual gig posters. Designed & printed by Twisted Head Press were 5 individual prints to mark each night of the tour, that when put together make one complete landscape poster.

Printed by hand using an antique cast iron letterpress and limited to 31 prints per venue. I got myself the London one as it was my favourite of the set but also has my birthday printed on it too!

So my new favourite album is Carry On, especially love “Shadows In The Dark” which you can hear in my kinda tunes.

Whilst having a wonder around Shoreditch one afternoon, I stumbled across Nobrow. An independent shop, gallery and publisher. The Nobrow shop is filled with beautiful books, comics, graphic novels, toys and limited edition prints.

A favourite of mine, published by Nobrow, is a concertina book Swan Lake detailing a night at the ballet. Beautifully illustrated by artist Ping Zhu it shows both front of house and back stage at the ballet.

They also have an exciting and unusual range of children’s books too. I got Raphael a couple of books. The Game of Light from by Hervé Tullet, is an inventive game of storytelling with shadows and Remarkable Animals, a mix and match book which allows you to create 100’s of mythical creatures.

I literally could spend hours in this store pottering around, it’s well worth a visit…..
