Tomorrow I will be taking my collection of Brooke Bond Tea Cards and Albums to support my Collaborative Research Task.

These books really illustrate for me in a very sincere way how collecting and my love of nature, design, science and language overlap. They also are marker points in time from my youth and collecting can often be steeped in nostaligia. I don’t think this aspect of collecting offers my research anything as I am trying to extend my understanding of myself, my practice as a designer/ illustrator and collecting as they potentially serve as bridging points to working with the science community.
