    Giulia Garbin: The Street of Ink

Publication: Giulia Garbin celebrates London's Fleet Street in a beautiful way

Posted by Rob Alderson,

At the moment there’s a trial going on in the UK that seemingly reflects the British press’ darkest hour. Various figures are accused of alleged mass hacking of phones and it has led to a lot of soul-searching about how low our once proud media has fallen.

Enter Giulia Garbin, a globetrotting Italian graphic designer who graduated from the Royal College of Art last year after stints working in Portugal, Switzerland and the Netherlands. She was fascinated by Fleet Street – once the home of London’s thriving, mischievous newspaper industry – and the stories its now slightly faded buildings seem to be dying to tell. And so The Street of Ink was born, a visual homage to this unique area of London as told by some of its hardworking, hard-playing former printing press employees.

Beautifully-imagined and so very, very timely, this is an important celebration of London’s past.
