Rose Clark does a lot of things— too many to name in one place but all worth examining more closely at her website. The artist/designer is effortlessly versatile, producing everything from an Edwardian tuxedo shirt and wearable paper trousers made from Tyvek to a poster made in homage to the Bodoni typeface (with information about its creator and history of use) to a research project examining the history of pattern cutting in folk clothing around the world.

There’s so much to see here; we haven’t even mentioned the gorgeous book designs and collages from found photos and abstract landscapes. Clark’s is the kind of astonishing range that can make a person crazily envious or crazily inspired or both. We’re sticking firmly with “inspired”.
