It's very hard to convey, in a photograph, the truly beautiful physical quality of the ink & it's colour on this gorgeously soft-to-touch paper
These photos are just not doing my cards justice so I'm going to retake them - this card is a gorgeous blue-green! - The cello-bags, whilst great for protection, disguise the soft matt of the paper & the un-shiny sheen of the ink - The 1st photo is a more accurate representation.
Cards will vary slightly due to the nature of hand production making each card unique & original

A Long Time Ago, in Cornwall... Mousehole fisherman, Tom Bawcock, set sail in the least violent storm during a winter of gales which had prevented any fishing & the village was starving. He returned with a haul of pilchards & the fishing village celebrated with a Starry Gazey Pie (fish pie made from pilchard with their heads & sometimes tails poking up through the pastry lid). Mousehole celebrates Tom Bawcock's Eve every year on the evening of December 23rd & a huge Starry Gazey Pie is cooked & served in The Ship Inn.
I wanted my image of this Cornish Tale to be appropriate for any reason, all through the year...
