Aardvark 2011 Manifesto Print

Last year, we featured their 2010 Manifesto, so it seems only right that we mention the 2011 Aardvark Manifesto Print.

Like their previous work, the manifesto is a letterpress print, made using traditional wood and metal type and consists of various slogans for better living such “value the commonplace”, “reclaim childhood” and my particular favourite “stay wonky”. The print costs £25 unframed or £50 in a black frame.

Aardvark Pause and Wonder print – part of new V&A ‘Cherry on the Cake’ collection

Pause and wonder

Remember Aardvark's Manifesto print? It urged you to do things like bake a cake, write a letter and play a kazoo. Well, Aardvark are back and have produced a new Pause and Wonder print along a similar vein, part of the V&A shop's new Cherry on the Cake collection

For the Cherry on the Cake collection designers were commissioned to create work inspired by the museum and its principles. Here Aardvark have gone back to the principles of the museum's founder, Henry Cole, for inspiration and depicted them in their trademark style as a letterpress print – here we are urged to marvel, learn and imagine. 

Works from eleven further designers make up the collection, including Retro To Go regulars like Lisa Jones, Angie Lewis and James Brown each producing interesting responses to the brief. 

This print retails for £25.
