One of the first things one of my best friends did when she moved out to the country was to buy some limited-edition Thornback & Peel prints for her new kitchen. Her purchase sums up the wide appeal of Juliet Thornback and Delia Peel’s work.
Since they first met in 2003, their exquisitely rendered, vintage-leaning illustrations of foods, plants and animal life have always been given a quirky twist by the way the duo combine and then screen-print them onto a whole host of kitchen textiles, tableware and much else besides.
Whether it’s rabbits and cabbages or jellies and cakes, their designs are perfect for jollying up day-to-day life.
