I have this thing for buying arty books and recently I went on a mini spree on some in Urban Outfitters. I do love the books in there and tend to ignore the clothes and head straight for the books and music section (What a girl) and luckily, on a recent trip, 'Illustration now 3' was in the sale!
Then a few weeks later on a another gander to Urban, I spotted this lovely book 'Simply Pattern'. I adore the sleeve of it, such a nice pattern for sure.
Sadly, there are not many 'alternative' books stores that I know of in Birmingham and I haven't been to London for a while, where the wonderful Magma Books is present (I love it in there too, good job I have no money or I would spend a terrible amount of money in there!)
