Timorous Beasties

Timorous Beasties was established in Glasgow in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons. Their work embodies a unique diversity of pattern, ranging from design that echoes a golden age of copperplate engraving (a time-honored classic is the Thistle range; or Merian Palm superwide wallpaper) to something of a more distinctly edgy nature; an elegant transgression; a display of chic irreverence.
