delightful deviation #2

Friday, 1 July 2011

Lucienne Day designed a number of tea towels - one in particular called 'Too Many Cooks' for Thomas Somerset (1959) became a best seller and, along with two others designs - 'Bouget Garni' and 'Black Leaf' - won a Design Centre Award in 1960.  Interestingly, an original 'Too Many Cooks' was on display at Pallant House - nicely framed and never used - still with the award sticker on the top right hand corner.
