Bonhams book launch

Bonhams book launch

Cut & Shut : The History of Creative Salvage was officially launched last night at Bonhams auction house on Bond Street. The project began 4 years ago when author Nick Wright realised that nothing had been written let alone published about this incredibly influential period of British design that began in the late 70’s and into the 80’s, naming it Creative Salvage. My involvement began in November 2011 when the studio was commissioned to design and produce the book. It soon become a permanent fixture in the studio up until its launch.

It’s been an incredible project to work on with the majority of the images having never been published before, along with the freedom I was afforded because it was independently published.

The book can be bought here
