Coulson Macleod Is The Perfect Wedding Gift

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Our latest typo­graphic art col­lec­tion ‘Land­marks’ can be per­son­al­ized. And we think this would make a totally superb wed­ding present.

All you need to do is give us a list of words (we use roughly 70 words to make up the ones in our ‘Land­marks’ col­lec­tion pic­tured below).

You could cre­ate one that was based on their hon­ey­moon des­tin­a­tion. Or cre­ate one that focuses on places in their lives together, such as where the couple met, the pub they hang out in — you get the idea.

And we at Coulson Macleod HQ do the rest. We’ll find an image that suits the art­work. The res­ult is a one-off piece of bespoke art­work. A totally per­sonal gift. And you’d be loved by the couple forever!

Your per­son­al­ized art­work based on our ‘Land­marks’ col­lec­tion fea­tures a hand­made frame and pan­elled back­board made from reclaimed antique Vic­torian roof tim­bers. The planks used to make the back­board vary in size for each print and we retain all those lovely defects in the wood to add to the charm and char­ac­ter of the piece. These can include knot holes, nail holes, warps and water marks, so each art­work is totally unique.

The fin­ished item is then over-printed with dis­tressed image and typo­graphy in UV ink.

Coulson Macleod Loves Bovey Lee

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Bovey Lee felt a spe­cial con­nec­tion to the fad­ing Chinese folk art of paper-cutting. Her work, using impossibly thin rice paper, is obscenely intric­ate and utterly beautiful.

Bovey Lee, “Spine”, 2007

Bovey Lee, “The But­ter­fly Gown”, 2010

Bovey Lee, "Tsunami-Enmeshed", 2008

Bovey is cur­rently a full-time artist based in Pitt­s­burgh. Her works have been exhib­ited at the Brook­lyn Museum of Art;  Museum Belle­rive, Zurich; National Glass Centre, UK; Museum of Fine Arts, Beijing; Fukuoka Museum of Art, Japan; Hong Kong Museum of Art; and Museum Rijswijk, The Netherlands.

Bovey’s art is rep­res­en­ted by Grotto Fine Arts Gal­lery in Hong Kong.

Do visit her web­site to see her enorm­ous col­lec­tion of work. Amazing!

Coulson Macleod Is Truly Global

Friday, June 18th, 2010

Thought I’d just tot up where in the world we’ve shipped our art to. So aside from the UK, Coulson Macleod prints now hang in homes in the fol­low­ing countries…

Aus­tralia, Canada, Fin­land, France, Ger­many, Greece, India, Ire­land, Italy, Neth­er­lands, New Zea­l­and, Nor­way, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, United Arab Emir­ates, and of course from the east to west coast of the USA.

How very, very cool!

Coulson Macleod Goes All Wintry

Friday, June 18th, 2010

Our latest col­lec­tion, ‘Winter Trees’ is now online to buy at Coulson Macleod

Thick Blows My Frosty Breath Abroad’

Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind’

The Roar of Trees and Crack of Branches’

Freeze, Freeze Thou Bit­ter Sky’

We’ve hand­made the frame and pan­elled back­board from reclaimed antique Vic­torian roof tim­bers, the same tim­bers that we use for our ‘Zodiac’ frames, because they are just so gor­geous. The planks all vary in size, so no piece is identical.

We then hand paint the boards and over-print it with dis­tressed image and typography.

Winter Trees’ is unlim­ited in print quantity.
