One Lump or Two
Tea, Twinings and Edward Bawden
During the 1920s and 1930s, Edward Bawden was commissioned to produce advertising illustrations for Twinings tea and coffee; drawings that were to accompany limericks by AJA Symons, the well-known author, dandy and epicure. As well as reproducing Bawden's advertisements and other drawings for tea companies, this tall, thin volume contains an essay by Peyton Skipwith and A Short History of Tea, originally issued by the Empire Tea Market Expansion Board in 1936.
French artist Mirka Lugosi creates a surreal fetishist dreamworld in this collection of her paintings and drawings. The pocket-sized artist's book presents 50 icon-like, fantasy pictures of unsettling mysterious locations, erotic paraphernalia and women exposing themselves. The images are accompanied by poetic texts by Marie-Laure Dagoit. Sexually explicit.
