Just back from Liverpool, where I’ve spent quite a bit of time this year. Loads to tell in due course but, if you are in the city, take a walk around the newly reinstated Chavasse Park. Recently opened, having been planted during the past year, it’s currently looking absolutely bloomin immaculate. Think Chelsea Flower Show garden on a massive scale. Gorgeous plants, my favourite being a semi mature pine on one of the terraces. Part of the seriously impressive Liverpool One development, this park is a stunning example of contemporary landscaping in the heart of an historic city. The grass edged water feature at the foot of the terraces is fab.
True to type
A nice little typographic treat from Sebastian Lester, who’s a typrographic designer; one of those new breed that Matthew Carter talks about. I never knew that the Apollo moon program had its own official typeface.
