Lovely literary prints

Just discovered Lucy Loves This, a very nice Etsy store run by book cover designer, Lucy Stephens, whose work reflects her love of words...

It was her Brixton print (see below) that led me to her as my local friend Talya emailed me a link (thank you T) but, looking around her shopfront I fell for these clean, stylish pared down portraits of classic authors, including Virginia Woolf, Jack Kerouac and Sylvia Plath. They're priced just £13 each and come unframed, A4 size – so peasy to frame in a ready-made. What do you think?

But back to Brixton, a phrase I use whenever possible, as it's my neighbourhood. And if you know a Londoner who loves their area, or you live in the capital and want to celebrate your spot in the city, Lucy is selling mementoes of various areas along the lines of this black and white beauty, above. You can buy this print on Etsy, for £28 unframed (it measures 21cm x 29.7cm).

But if you don't live – or love – the capital, but like Lucy's style, do check out her shop for other non-area-specific goodies. Her simple, graphical Christmas cards are rather lovely, too (they come in packs of three, priced £6.50; the others read 'ho, ho, ho' and 'noel', but Frosty – above – is my favourite).

See more of Lucy's work and interests on her website and blog.
