You don’t have to go on holiday to send a postcard

Series of letterpress and etching inspired postcards to celebrate the British summer. 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.
