I was a very lucky girl again on my birthday the other week - two really fab presents from Mr M. The first I've already shown off on Instagram and the second was another thing I'd been after, a copy of This Brutal World by Peter Chadwick.
Now you know I like a bit of concrete... When I spotted this book on Instagram I knew I had to have a copy. All very promising from the front cover, but it's wonderful inside - a substantial picture book of Brutalist loveliness! Oh and any book which quotes Pulp lyrics and contains pictures of Park Hill is a winner as far as I'm concerned...
It's a pretty substantial tome, coming in at 224 pages - proper coffee table material (not as heavy as this one though!) and I can see I'll be wading through it, and sketching ideas for many months to come. Also a few more buildings in here to seek out and visit.
In case you're intrigued by the other wonderful present, here it is.... a beautiful pot from Kabinshop - you can find her on Etsy here.
