Anachroquarianism by Kristjana S Williams- 09.15.12

animalmap.jpgThe latest from London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw as we begin our coverage of London Design Festival 2012.

To kick off London Design Festival 2012 we caught up with the talented natural history inspired illustrator Kristjana S Williams, whom we featured earlier for her work with Zubrowka. Her latest exhibition, Anachroquarianism, is housed in the gorgeous Shapero Rare Books, a gem of a store specializing in antiquarian prints, rare books and other treasures located on Saint George Street just off Hanover Square. We loved the bookshop setting and the way Williams’ beautiful illustrations worked with the backdrop of antiquarian collectibles and natural history prints and illustrations from the 19th century.

The exhibition opened to the public on September 14th and will run until the 22nd as a part of the London Design Festival 2012 and Williams’ limited editions prints will be available both at the exhibition and online from Outline Editions. See more photos of the press preview and some of our favorite pieces next page!
