— Moira Shearer

I have just found this photograph of what is clearly a young Moira Shearer – I don’t know who the photographer is, but think the image lovely.


The English Group has recently completed a book of the celebrated British movie star portrait photographer Cornel Lucas’s work, and as he was the stills photographer on Powell and Pressburger’s ‘The Red Shoes’, we had to edit many other images of Shearer that he had shot in 1947 to promote the film.

Having been asked what the font is for Zadie Smith’s ‘On Beauty’ I had assumed it a bespoke typeface (drawn just for this author, or book). Actually it is available.

— Zadie Smith, ‘On Beauty’

I love the US cover design for the new novel by Zadie Smith; red metallic foil blocking of a bespoke font on ivory uncoated stock.


..simple, stylish, just lovely.
