Up My Street celebrates the vanishing High Street of traditional bakers, ironmongers, children's outfitters, and laundrettes.

A carefully crafted masterpiece, concertinaing out to a generous 140cm landscape frieze and printed with three hand-mixed spot colour inks to a 100% recycled board. It's the second project we've worked on with independent London publisher Design for Today – following on from Brick House – and the first time we've worked with illustrator Louise Lockhart.

Design for Today collaborates with influential and exciting young designers and illustrators who are inspired by mid-century design and early lithography to create limited edition books, cards, and printed pleasures.
