Art in Miniature at the Old Vic
Hat-trick's contribution to the London Design Festival this year has been to celebrate the rich variety of art that has been commissioned over the years for Royal Mail stamps. The design company have selected sets for display in relevant and interesting locations around the capital. So, remembrance stamps can be found at the Army Museum and scientific break-throughs at the Royal Society.
Venues taking part are:
Fashion & Textile Museum
National Army Museum
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home
The Royal Society
London Transport Museum
The Playhouse Theatre
Horniman Museum & Gardens
The Cartoon Museum
London Vision Clinic
William Morris Gallery
Homerton University Hospital
SEA LIFE London Aquarium
Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising
I'm delighted to say, that the Royal Shakespeare Company stamps I illustrated and constructed, and which John Ross shot last year, have been put on display at the Old Vic Theatre.
