How to be an Art Rebel
Our Read of the Month is...

LAS lecturer Ben Street has a new book for children out this month. How to be an Art Rebel is a wonderful companion for children who want to learn about art. Leo the museum cat helps to explain different art movements and encourages them to make up their own minds about what the art means.

Kusama Tea Towels
In the Kitchen with Kusama

We adore all things Yayoi Kusama and these tea-towels are no exception. Such a lovely idea for a gift.


Fine and delicate taste is the fruit of education and experience.

— Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres
Frida - Arianna Davis
What Would Frida Do?

We can't get enough of this book by writer Arianna Davis. A Guide to Living Boldly inspires women and girls to live fearlessly, using Frida Kahlo and her life's work as inspiration. Available in paperback and hard cover, the book won the award of Best Gift Book of the Year by In Style, Oprah Daily and Esquire.

Little People Children's Book
Artists for Little People

This lovely series of books (Little People, Big Dreams) tells the stories of inspirational artists throughout history with the aim of inspiring children and we love this one which tells the stories of multiple artists including Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Frida Kahlo and Louise Bourgeois. Packed full of beautiful illustrations, we think the adults might like these for the coffee table too!


Art must be an expression of love or it is nothing.

— Marc Chagall
Perfect Puzzle

We just love this jigsaw puzzle from Artware Editions - Gray Malin's famous beach scene has been made into a one thousand piece puzzle - a perfect summer activity for any art lover!

Light Up Your Life

We love a museum gift shop and Tate Modern has one of the best. This Olafur Eliasson Little Sun Lamp is solar powered and gives 5 hours of light when fully charged. The best thing about it though is that through buying it, you help to make it available to those who do not have affordable access to electricity. A wonderful iniative set up by artist Eliasson to help communities living off-grid.


Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

— Edgar Degas
