A book celebrating the everyday object. The book was inspired by a poem called ‘To Shop Signs’ by Russian futurist poet, Vladimir Mayakovsky and is where I got the title. His poem is a tribute to the every day art of street signs, which I think fits perfectly well with my tribute to the everyday object. Mayakovskys poetry has been described as ‘painting with words’ - his style is very visual and energetic. I wanted my book to capture some of the same energetic playfulness of his poetry.
