This 1942 Christmas card was designed by Elizabeth Friedlander while she was working at the Political Intelligence Office producing 'secret propaganda', using both Roman and Blackletter (Gothic) alphabets. The initials EH stood for Ellic Howe, head of the secretive department.
.
Next Thursday 22 Feb, you can hear calligrapher Ewan Clayton presenting his talk 'Vienna, Frankfurt and Ditchling; British & German Calligraphy Between The Wars'. Ewan will be focusing on the 20thC calligraphic revival and its three founders: Edward Johnston in Britain, Rudolf Von Larisch in Austria & Rudolf Koch in Germany.

We love this illustration of our #PenguinEssentials exhibition by @marianikla, particularly the texture of the wood.

Spent a fabulous morning at the Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, enjoying the ‘20 Years of Penguin Essentials’ display and savouring the #elizabethfriedlander exhibit: A fantastic show about a remarkable woman and her wonderful designs. The museum shop is worth the trip alone - wonderful books, great stuff and great places to eat in the area. In short, a great day out!

This lovely New Year's card was created by Elizabeth Friedlander in 1958 for the 50th anniversary of Mills & Boon. Her handwriting marks the client and project, and came straight from her portfolio.
.
As a commercial designer, Friedlander could turn her hand to many different styles and to suit different occasions, but her work always maintains a meticulous intricacy and attention to detail. We particularly love the owl!

What would you take with you if you had to leave your life behind? Elizabeth Friedlander left Germany with few possessions; amongst those she brought to the UK (including her portfolio) was this violin belonging to her mother, made by Matthias Klotz in 1703, on loan to us from the Cork School of Music. You can see it displayed in our exhibition against the stunning music score covers she designed for Penguin in the early 1950s.
.
We are holding a special concert on Sat 28 April, with outstanding violinist Mairéad Hickey performing on the Klotz, accompanied by pianist Yoko Ono. There will also be a talk on 'Refugee Artists' by Counterpoint Arts, a leading national organisation in the field of arts, migration and social change.

Introduction to hand lettering workshop with Patrick Knowles this morning was a sell out. "I'll never look at lettering in the same way again" said a happy participant.
