Matt Sewell does
Mini Moderns – competition!

Do you know Matt Sewell's birds? I first discovered the artist/ ornithologist through Pedlars, who were selling prints of his beautiful garden birds illustration.

That, alas, was a limited edition, though you can still buy his lovely individual drawings in the same style (scroll down to see one). But today we're all about his charming, Charley Harper-ish wooden birds, below. And this new set of four – a special commission for Mini Moderns to show off the homeware duo's new environmentally-friendly paint (more about which here) – is up for grabs for FREE...


This colourful quartet, being individually hand-made and painted, is not so cheap – it'd set you back £300 to buy. But MM are giving you the chance to win the lot (signed and numbered, no less) along with a copy of Sewell's pretty new book, Our Songbirds, below right (next to one of Sewell's solo bird prints, which cost £45 from his website).

You can also buy individual birds in three different types, pictured below, from the V&A shop for £85 each.

Rather give winning a go? The competition closes on 21 June – follow @minimoderns on Twitter and retweet the competition to win, or like the competition post on their Facebook page and comment on it, or follow minimoderns through Instagram. You can also win by joining their mailing list – just email the word 'birds' in the subject to charlotte@minimoderns.com

Now... on that topic, would you like to have a nose around the home of Mini Moderns' founders? That's their sitting room below – nice innit? Take the tour here.
