The British Library: Pleasures of the Garden

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

This anthology of poems and prose about gardens is illustrated with some gorgeous vintage drawings, all from the archives at The British Library. Designing with such beautiful content was a joy.

 

A traditional, elegant design with a few decorative twiddles was required to gently display these lovely images and we added a very subtle colour palette which has surely been inspired by Briony's time working at designer paint company Farrow & Ball.
