‘If you love art, folly or the bright eyes of children, speed to Pollock’s’
Robert Louis Stevenson.
Pollock’s toy paper theatre shop and printers 73, Hoxton Street was founded in 1851 by John Redington and run by Benjamin Pollock and family. There you could buy hand printed, constructed paper toy theatre sets designed by Pollock, Skelt, Parks, Webb, Green, and Redington.
This autumn Lucy Steggals (&The Saturday Museum) will be producing a new paper theatre set drawing from the original designs focusing on the forest. Every Monday from October to December 2016 a new forest sheet will be published.
Please do collect them to construct your own forest and share them with us on Twitter @saturdaymuseum @PEER_UK or Instagram @thesaturdaymuseum @peergallery #FORESTSET
You can now download all 12 sheets.
Limited edition, printed colour versions are available from PEER shop.
’Every sheet we fingered was another lightening glance into obscure, delicious story; it was like wallowing in the raw stuff of story books, I know nothing to compare with it save now and then in dreams.’
Robert Louis Stevenson ‘A penny Plain and Two Pence Coloured’ A Magazine of Art 1884
