Meet EJ Osbourne
In issue 105 we met the woodworker and TV presenter EJ Osbourne from Hatchet + Bear in his rustic workshop. In the farmlands of Frome, we watched him create beautiful pieces as he talked about heritage crafts, Instagram and the influence of TV. It’s an amazing interview and definitely worth a Sunday morning read.

Your new wallpaper
This month’s wallpaper is this floral number by Miranda Sofroniou. Originally from England but based in Australia, she’s giving us some summertime realness with this background. Whether it’s bright sunshine outside, or more likely for us in the UK, windy and a bit damp, set Miranda’s illustration as your desktop, tablet, and phone wallpaper and embrace the season of flowers.
