Illustrations from Kat Macleod’s brand new book - Sequins & Sequence, published by And Collective / Erm Books.

I think by now it should be fairly clear that I am leading a double life of sorts.   Aside from my VERY IMPORTANT duties as your loyal daily design blogger – it is a little-known fact that I am also president of the Kat Macleod Appreciation Society.  I take both responsibilities VERY seriously.

SO as president (and founder) of the KMAS, it if my great pleasure to let you know about Kat Mac’s BRAND NEW BOOK – Sequins & Sequence - an artist’s book chock-full of Kat’s stunning layered illustrations.

Inspired by flora and fauna both on land and under the sea, Sequins & Sequence brings together a vivid palette of bold greens, vibrant blues and delicious ice-cream pinks, highlighted of course with clusters of sparkly sequins and embroidery.  It is seriously SO SO hyperventilatingly BEAUTIFUL…. but then again I must admit Ms Macleod really can do no wrong in my books. :)

Sequins & Sequence has been published by Melbourne artist-run publishing house And Collective / Erm Books, and is the first in what will be a series of hardback artist’s books.  They have been produced in a limited edition of only 1000 books, each hand numbered and stamped.  The MOST unbelievable and brilliant thing is that they are only $20.00!  Oh my god at that price these REALLY will not last long so if you have a girlfriend / sister / cousin / neice or bestie in need of a particularly special stocking filler this Christmas… well… I think I just found it.

Die-hard Kat Macleod fans might also be keen to come to the LAUNCH of Sequins & Sequence tonight in Melbourne’s CBD!   It will be a very lovely, low-key affair.  And of course Kat will be signing copies of the brand new book!

    Lucy i’m glad you posted this! I stumbled across this book last Thursday and wondered how on earth no one had mentioned it yet. I too count myself as the prez of Kat’s fanclub so i’m over the moon to see something so beautiful – all belonging to her.
    I shall be frequenting the letter box today with gusto!

    Oh this is so divine!
    my sister and i used to play with these sequins when we were little.
    But these are way more beautiful than anything we used to make!
    Sequins rock!

    Do you know if there is any chance of any of these divine sequin creations being available for framing – I think they would look amazing. Picturing one in my bedroom…
