    On thinking back I don’t think I could have afforded the Letraset. I think I traced the basic design with a rotring from Stencil font in the Letraset catalogue, and redrew it radically after showing the (tiny) rough to Henrion a day or two later.

    I’m amazed and very honoured to see my name alongside some of the real stars of our design world. The edition tells some great stories, beautifully.

    Thank you to all who like the design, and to Michael and Charlotte for their kind words – it can be a real bore to have to live and work with a logo. I’ve always thought I’d go to the South Bank one day and the NT would have been retired. I love the designs they and their team have created for the theatre.

    Can I buy an NT deckchair anywhere?

    What a pity Dickie Bird isn’t around to swap stories with.
