I think of Marimekko as being a very well-known studio, but my students are often unfamiliar with it. I found an old copy of petit glam in a sale bin with a beautiful marimekko feature with some pretty, classic prints and thought I would put in a few notes from it. Maybe I should do this with all magazines so I can happily throw them away!

"[Bo boo designer] Katsuji Wakisaka's relationship to colour was emotional; first came the material, then the pattern, and finally the colour." —Phenomenon Marimekko
