Fortnum and Mason's Butterflies

I took time out recently to visit one of my favourites of the art fairs - The London Original Print Fair, at the Royal Academy in Piccadilly. Whilst there I couldn't help but notice these huge butterflies temporarily covering the facade of Fortnum and Mason opposite, whilst it undergoes a face-lift.

I really like the black and white illustrations and was reminded of some black and white illustrations I did which were enlarged, developed into 3D models, and used as window displays for Harrod's in the 1990s. Watch out for my next post which will feature more architectural and cartographic inspired black and white butterflies.
