1 BELLY BASKETS Clutter round the house can make you feel resentful of toys, blankets, magazines and slightly out of control plants. Restore order with Olli and Ella’s range of ethicallysourced and fairtrade, belly baskets. Olli Ella was founded on the principle that what works for a nursery, should work just as well for the rest of the family home, meaning that a purchase can grow with your family rather than become another item bound for the attic or second-hand sale. Perfect for storing toys, blankets and throws, blocks and Lego, these look just as good in the living room as they do the playroom. Find them at olliella.com 2 PASSIONATE ABOUT PRESERVES While we’re safely tucked inside from the elements, it’s time to treat ourselves to our favourite preserves slathered over warm…

deep reading

For as long as novels have existed, there have been moralists to warn of their dangers. Late Victorian educationalist Charlotte Mason chided that “the girl who sits for hours poring over a novel, to the damage of her eyes, her brain, and her general nervous system, is guilty of a lesser fault of the nature of suicide.” Recent research, though, has claimed that rather than inducing a slow death, reading books can actually keep you alive: a study in the journal Social Science & Medicine found that those who read a book for 30 minutes a day had a 23-month survival advantage, regardless of their wealth, education, health or sex. And fascinatingly, this advantage was specific to books. No other reading material did so much good for its readers. The researchers…

a book for all emotions

BEREAVED H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald Devastated with grief after her father died, Helen Macdonald did an extraordinary thing: she bought a hawk.

natural talents

When researching for our ‘Love of Books’ theme this issue, we came across David Wardle’s work and knew we had to get him involved. David is a designer, illustrator and typographer who creates hand-drawn, contemporary book covers, lettering and typography. Recent works include illustrations for a series of Paul Hollywood cookery books and a Le Creuset book. He has also penned a new typeface for the original queen of cookery, Mrs Beeton, in an updated guide for the 21st-century kitchen. The books, their covers and imagery within, are beautiful and are of the highest quality. But that’s the only way David works, as does Bold & Noble – the company he founded with his wife, Jane Tobbitt. Jane and David are joint creative directors, sharing the design work, along with two…

read create a display of ‘read’ letters

HOW DAVID CREATED THE LETTERS “The first part of working on the illustration is to try and find some relevant source material, in this instance vintage letterpress ornaments and initial caps for each letter. I’ll then start to look for references of the other elements, people reading, reading lamps, etc. “After the initial research I’ll make rough sketches of the elements I want to incorporate, scan them and then start to arrange them over the shape that I eventually want to create, in this case an initial cap. I look at where each sketch might fit and roughly drop them into position, I’ll then print out the outlined shape and the rough sketches. At this point I’ll work into the gaps between the drawings with line, shape and decoration to try and…
