You can keep your five golden rings and arboreally ensconced partridge. We’ll take eleven exotic writing utensils, ten action figures a-leaping, and a Sesame Street screen saver. All of these wonders and more await you in Laurence King‘s “Twelve Desks of Christmas.” The London-based publisher behind covetable and creative titles such as Angus Hyland and Steven Bateman‘s Symbol and 100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design by Steven Heller and Veronique Vienne engaged in a little office voyeurism this holiday season, posting photos of 12 mystery desks and inviting the world to guess whose was whose. Here are a few (recently de-identified) highlights, from our desk to yours:
See those books? He wrote all of them! This is the desk of Steve Heller.
The workspace of professional paper folder and paper artist Paul Jackson, author of Folding Techniques for Designers: From Sheet to Form.
Where the magic happens for illustrator Marion Deuchars. Pick up a copy of her Let’s Make Some Great Art for any budding artists on your Christmas list.
