Cards . . .
Taking a little time to jot a note to a friend is one of life’s great, underrated pleasures, and it can be all the better when you find just the right image to share.
We enjoy tracking down lovely cards, and find them in all sorts of byways and corners of the art world.
The subjects are as wide-ranging as the producers. From popular artists such as Eric Ravilious and Edward Bawden to surprising and delightful visions of the local area; from quiet, intimate scenes to exuberant celebrations; from typographical formality to lyrical displays of delightful, rhapsodic spontaneity.
There are card embroidered by hand, with beautiful detailing. And pop-up cards to delight the most jaded spirit, including a new line of 3D animals from a Brighton designer.
So next time you’re ready to pen a note or share a thought, stop in to find a card that matches your mood – our selection is constantly changing! (Click here for hours and directions to the shop.)
. . . And more!
And that’s not all you’ll find around the shop. You come across our own hand-made badges; prints from old books (they’re in such poor shape that the books themselves would have to be scrapped); our own unique line of ReCovered Notebooks (made from the covers of old books - read more about them by clicking here); packets of ephemera assembled for crafters (read more about them, here); framed prints and autographs; and a miscellany of oddments and bits and bobs . . .
You might also come across scrapbooks we fill with old articles, reviews and images that we put out for customers to browse.
