Cath Kidston have been moving away from the florals with which they are so closely associated: we featured their London bus collection just recently and now their new Clocks pattern has caught our eye.
A bit of a clock watcher? There's plenty to look at in this new retro clocks wallpaper from Albany.
One of two of these have been featured here before, but as the Arne Jacobsen for Rosendahl Danish clocks are now discounted at Fab, we thought it was worth flagging them up.
The Etsy seller by the name of SteampunksNotDead specialises in Vintage Book Clocks.
Each clock is a one of a kind piece and is made from a book usually dating from between 1890 and 1960. Most of the book clocks currently available use obscure titles (The Scarlett Letter was the only one I recognised), but I think they are all the better for it. Various styles of clock hands are available so you can request a certain style. Equally, if you have a book that you would like transformed into a clock, then they are happy to quote for doing that. Prices range from around £16 to just under £100 depending on the size and rarity of the book.

The new Albany Catwalk wallpaper collection features this striking design, based around five different retro clocks.
The clocks range from the very distinctive Vitra ball clock style design and a mid-century starburst number, to more neutral minimal designs.
This black and white is the most subdued of the colour combinations available: you can also get this design as metallic teal printed clocks on black, or metallic orange on a chocolate brown background. Those two colourways certainly have more of a retro feel, but possibly have too much impact for the average room.
The wallpaper costs £19.99 a roll.
