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

I’ve included photos of the metal type because it’s just so lovely. But, obviously, it's not for sale :)

Inspiration

This is a different type of card from my linocuts (which mostly include things about Cornwall). I've some gorgeous moveable-type which I've had for years and typesetting is an impressive skill I’ve long been in awe of, so I indulged in playing whilst preparing my next linocut (still in progress!). The image is an experiment for some other ideas I have.

This card was originally a little message for Mr. R - In our early life together I used to sneak small ‘Love Tokens’ into his luggage when he had trips to make - like a small sprinkle of sea-glass, or sand from the beach, or paper-cuttings left from things I’d been making... So when he unpacked or opened a book to read, my memento would cascade out. - I don’t see why we shouldn’t all give each other little love messages whenever we feel like it :)

The image has a quality I really like & it perfectly makes use of the remainder strip from my paper-sheets after being divided for my other cards.
