Today, in a special fashion week edition of Happy Monday, we present a beautiful array of illustrated typography by Maureen Bourke. These are taken from the 1980 publication Magic Names of Fashion, where author Ernestine Carter selects her favourite fashion visionaries, or at least those whose work or style she believes to hold some sort of indefinable magic quality, and explains the reasons behind her choices in enlightening detail. Each section of text is accompanied by one of Bourkes' perfect illustrations, from a C containing a miniature Coco Chanel to Schiaparelli depicted by a shoe-topped S.
Happy (LFW) Monday! #anotherhappymonday
