Pulse London: Original Metal Box : Clifford Richards.

It was great to meet the artist/ illustrator /designer Clifford Richards whose work was very popular in the 60's and 70's. What I love about his work is that it is timeless, they work equally well today as they did back then. His Noah's Ark - below was one of Paperchase's best selling products in 1970. The alphabet picture is new. It's hard to imagine that there are 40 years between them! They are made in tin, which gives them a bit of retro.

These are great, They are modular small useful boxes that have been put up on a racking system. You can change the designs and change the direction of pattern to have something that is unique to you.

These remind me of Rob Ryan's cats
Dutch Town Houses
This is my favourite - The Kong Box
