More Information

In 2015 Nicola released a small range of striking designs inspired by the works of Victorian graphic artist, Talwin Morris. Her vision encompassed symbols and colours interwoven with the Glasgow style. This year, it is an absolute pleasure to see the range expand as Nicola continues her devotion to, what she describes as, ‘one of my absolute favourite Moorcroft influences.’ Talwin became hugely influential in Victorian book design by moving away from the popular narrative bindings of the time to a more modern Art Nouveau approach where line, curve and decoration were used to entice the reader. At Blackie and Son his output was prolific, producing many designs that could be printed in different colourways across series such as the Red Letter Library and Library of Famous Books. Though many of his book designs are unsigned, some feature his ‘signature’ of a single dot followed, after a pause, by a further two dots (a stylised rendition of his initials in morse code). The plaque has its roots in the front cover of ‘Select Poems of Robert Burns.’ Two doves mirror each other in birdsong, framing a bouquet of Glasgow roses invented by Macintosh himself. The ginger jar includes those simple circles which were dotted across Talwin’s designs, almost like punctuation. Nicola selected many elements from this subculture of book cover art so the lines, arrows, hearts, leaves and dashes can be seen throughout the range. She had a deliberate colour scheme in mind before she designed the range, knowing that blacks, reds and pinks are synonymous with the style she was trying to recreate. But as ever with Moorcroft designers, in all their work they bring their own perfunctory flare and we also see the very delicate greens and blues which Nicola is so often drawn to quite naturally herself. Nicola gladly shares that the collection is one of her favourite ranges in Moorcroft history, and many wholeheartedly agree.
