We’re welcoming in the Chinese Year of the Monkey with an endearing little sketch by Jennifer Copley-May.This is the year of the Red Fire Monkey and London will officially be celebrating on Valentine’s Day – if you’re local what more do you need to paint the town red? Party time beckons!
Local or not, we’ve picked out a few red items from the shop to bring you luck this year. From the arts pages, a Petunia print in 2 sizes by Jennifer Copley-May and an original woodcut print, Best of Friends also by Jennifer, celebrating that special relationship between dogs and cats. They’d make perfectly original Valentine’s Day presents or a fine gift at any time of the year.
From the photography pages, a cute red van and a signature London double decker bus photographed by Iain Kemp for his Retro Car Collection.

Life would not be complete without flowers – those below photographed by Julian Winslow and designed by Zita Elze in Kew, just up the road from Armadillo Central HQ – wherever you are don’t forget to order the most sumptuous bunch for the 14th – in the foreground this year’s special bouquet of Piano spray roses in a cloud of red asparagus fern.
