This is Britain

The flurry of excitement surrounding the London Olympics has brought about pride amongst the English for their homegrown talent, including those in the art and design arena. Until August 12, the V&A will host ‘British Design‘, the first major exhibition to celebrates post-war design from the country. The TATE London have begun using short videos to promote their collection, including fashion designer Vivienne Westwood discussing two paintings which capture her vision of London.  And if you’d like to carry these beautiful creations around in your pocket, you could always collect these  British Design Classics stamps issued by the Royal Mail.
