About Rather Keen

Hiya! I'm Andrew, the designer, illustrator (and owner) of Rather Keen. I'm very much into reading—which is why so many of my products are bookish. My work is especially inspired by the style of the 1930s and 40s. That's one of my favorite periods to read about, and I've just always felt drawn to fun and sophisticated retro designs.

I've been designing book covers for publishers for over a decade. My first bookish enamel pins began as gifts for these clients, and a year ago I started selling them. I now have a dozen pin designs, and I'm expanding into more accessories like my new necklace and bandana.

I live in Southern California with my wife and three daughters.
