girl and bird Map and Typography Designs
girl and bird is an accessories label created by british designer & maker, Annah Legg. Every one of the charming girl and bird creations is designed and handmade by Annah in her Bristol studio. She has a collection of over 300 vintage maps, in a range of ages, colours and styles, and can personalise designs with a customer’s favourite location anywhere in the UK. The personalised pieces make ideal gifts for friends, family and for your own home.
The cartography collection, Annah explains, “was born from a belief that we have a strong, and undeniable tie to ‘places’ – be they where we grew up, went to university or spent the best holiday of our lives. these ‘places’ are too important to us to be confined to a screen. Google maps and satnavs have removed us from the tactile experiences that maps provide.”
Here are just a few of our favourite designs from girl and bird’s recent collections.
We love these map print products and recent calligraphy-themed collection. They would make lovely gifts to celebrate special occasions, such as weddings and new homes.
