This week’s guest poster is Laura Clayton. Laura is Grafik Magazine’s hugely talented staff writer.
‘This year, Grafik celebrated its 150th issue with a huge homemade cake, too much booze and these rather handsome little books (if we do say so ourselves). We asked 150 inspirational types to tell us about an idea, a person, an object or activity that inspires themâ€”from takeaway menus to porcelain dogsâ€”and compiled the results into dinky foil blocked volumes. Yours for a tenner (+p&p), it’s great for the bathroom.’
