Brand identity and inlaid menu covers designed by Bibliothèque for Monica Galetti's new London restaurant Mere

Mere–pronounced Mary–is a modern two-storey restaurant and bar, located in London’s Fitzrovia, developed by chef Monica Galetti and sommelier David Galetti, working in collaboration with Westbury Street Holdings.
