Somerset House - bespoke bookmark

Last year we met with one of our great London stockists, the Rizzoli bookshop at Somerset House to discuss designing an exclusive gift for them which has resulted in this architectural metal bookmark of the South Wing.

It was amazing to learn the rich history of the site which dates back to 1547. Over the years the space has been redeveloped, demolished and reconstructed by a number of leading British architects (to include Inigo Jones and Sir Christopher Wren) and served as home to royalty, important governmental offices, learned societies and in more recent times a creative community and place that embraces contemporary art and culture.

There are free tours of Somerset House every Thursday and Saturday, highly worth a visit if you'd like to learn more about this spectacular place!
