Mini Moderns, Hold Tight

'Hold Tight' wallpaper from Mini Moderns

As something of a hoarder of paper ephemera I have often been open to intense ridicule. Imagine my mixed feelings of jubilation and justification when I saw this wallpaper ‘Hold Tight’ by Mini Moderns from their ‘Day-tripper’ collection. The poorly printed type faces are intriguing, they tell so many stories of different journeys across London.

The bus tickets in the design are a celebration of the red route master buses that used to trundle around London. The conductor wore the bulky ticket machine harnessed to a leather apron low slung on their waist. Deep in concentration they adjusted the wiggets and sprockets on the machine as they recorded your journey. Then turning the crank on the side a paper ticket curled out printed with lines and grids of obscure purple letters like hieroglyphics. The perfect collection for our staycation summer.
