Episode 9

Talwin Morris, Walter Blackie and Mackintosh: World Book Day Special

Join us this World Book Day as we find out about Mackintosh’s book design career for Glasgow Publisher Walter Blackie (who then commissioned him to create Hill House.) We also learn about a man sometimes referred to as the ‘fifth member of the Glasgow Four’ namely Talwin Morris, Blackie’s Art Manager who created some astounding books himself, as well as employing Mackintosh. Isabella and I also discuss memorable book covers from our own life, and wrap up trying to guess what the plots of some weird and wonderful Art Nouveau books.
