Now that it has successfully launched, we are pleased to announce that we have been working on a commission with the Museum of London on a range of letterpress products for their shop as part of the new Sherlock Holmes exhibition.

The designs themselves were produced by A Plus B Studio, who did all the identity work for the exhibition as well as the custom typeface, whilst we were brought in to do the actual printing and apply our stationery & product design skills to the range.

Focusing on the writings of Arthur Conan Doyle, the designs were all heavily based on a selection of well known, and slightly less famous, quotes and styled in a way to evoke the bold, headlines of 19th century newspapers and billheads. The colour palette was based on the Booth’s poverty maps, and custom mixed to create a range of muted, Victorian scarlet and orange, mustard yellow, pea green, and cobalt blue.

We were particularly pleased with the blind deboss on the limited edition prints, tucked away in the bottom right corner opposite the edition number.

All the products are available in the Museum of London shop and via their online store, but if you’re in London any time between now and the 12th of April then pop by and check the exhibition out.
