Poison bottle with Belladonna tincture, 1880-1900. England.

Belladonna or Deadly Nightshade is a poisonous plant. However, leaves and roots have medicinal qualities. Leaves were used as a narcotics to induce sleep or as a muscle relaxant. A tincture is an alcoholic solution of a medicine.

Poison bottles had distinctive textures and colours – like this cobalt blue – so they could easily be identified by touch and by sight. sciencemuseum

Felix Gonzalez-Torres
Untitled (Perfect Lovers) 1991. Clocks, paint on wall.

Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time due to the failure of the batteries and the nature of the mechanism. In a moving comment on his personal experiences, the piece refers to Gonzalez-Torres’ HIV positive partner Ross Laycock, and his slow decline and inevitable death due to AIDS. The clocks act as two mechanical heartbeats; representative of two lives destined to fall out of sync, and holds a poignant poetry about personal loss and the temporal nature of life.

Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us…We conquered fate by meeting at a certain time in a certain space…we are synchronized, now forever. I love you.”

this is one of my favorite works ever

Textured Type

I can’t believe that a year has shot past since I met up with Bobby Evans to talk about his highly recognisable poster work and how his much imitated vintage style developed. This week sees the launch of his studio’s reincarnation as Telegramme Paper Co. which maintains its emphasis on screen printed designs and gig posters but has now expanded to include home wares, custom wedding invites and hand-painted signs.

Kate Brighouse has joined Telegramme and the pair’s shared passion for vintage and mid-Century illustration style looks to be very complimentary.

The new designs continue their masterful use of retro colour palettes and ‘off-register’, textured illustration style. I’m of course drawn to the more typographic designs. I think the blend of customised typefaces, textures and imaginative themes still set the bar for this type of Illustration work. 

“With a joint love of fine paper goods and the lost joy of sending and receiving post, Bobby & Kate run the Award Winning Telegramme Paper Co. from their studio in North London.”
