Le Chien et Moi

Communicating the look and feel of antiquities shop Le Chien Et Moi is this dog-eared, sepia toned Victorian scrap book – part website and part artefact.

Shop owners Andy Bolton and Pip Bolton – who also work for fashion designer Paul Smith – donated the book to the project with blank pages, having found it in China years before.

Hand-written type has been laid out on screen with photographs of objects which are then printed by ‘heat press’ – a process for producing transfers – and applied as a laminate to each page in the book.

Weathered, opulent and decadent, Lechienetmoi.com casts a Withnail and I perspective on long-lost objects with a sharp digital eye.
