Every issues we ask three interesting people: what are you up to? In issue 12 we featured 3 creative entrepeneurs. One of them is Louise Lockhart. You can read a preview of Louise’s ‘What are you up to’ below.
Tell us about your book, Up My Street, which was published recently.
It’s my first book, and is a lovely, small scale project, from a British publisher called Design for Today, who found me on Instagram. I wanted to do a modern version of Eric Ravilious’ High Street, which captured the images of disappearing high street shops of his era. Mine is a concertina book, which opens out and turns into a high street on one side, and on the other side you see inside the shops.
I’m working on an activity book for kids about food, called Playing with Food; it will be published by Cicada Books in early 2016. It’ll be a thick big book and everything inside will be like “Make a chef’s hat from paper” or “Draw what you had for lunch today.”
