Summertime Postcards

Summertime Postcards

I’ve created a series of letterpress and etching inspired postcards to celebrate the promise of a hot English summer. The idea is that you don’t have to go on holiday to send a postcard, and they continue the style of typography I was experimenting with at Christmas. The large A5 size postcards on 400gsm card combine gingham, nostalgia and childhood memories with Victorian botanical prints of the plants and insects found in a typical English summer day.

Long balmy summer days in the park, grassy beer gardens, road trips to the seaside, kiss me quick, fizzy pop and ice cream…

The sets of postcards will be launched at the Open Studio event at the Chocolate Factory N16 on June 20th/21st surrounded by astroturf and bunting. They come in sets of 4 for £5 and will also be available via the With Relish website: www.withrelish.co.uk

As seen in this week’s Design Week!

And to go with the lashings of bunting I’ve spent the evening pushing through my sewing machine, I’m going to bake ‘Carry On Cookies’ tomorrow – letter shaped gingerbread cookies spelling out saucy holiday messages!
