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, but I think these photos get it better than I managed for my other cards.
Cards will vary slightly due to the nature of hand production making each card unique & original

The image, in this print, is extracted from a photo Mr R took in ‘Treloyhan Woods’, St Ives during a campaign to save this important wildlife corridor from development. Sadly the trees could not be saved & are currently being felled.
Treloyhan Woods were planted over a century ago on top of Wheal Margery’s (an early Cornish mine-works) shafts after the mine had stopped being worked. It’s an area steeped in local heritage and flora & fauna which inhabit forgotten mining spoils within the woods.
I love the way Bee’s head is buried deep within the flower tenaciously collecting pollen ...& contributing to our eco-system, regardless.
This print is a tribute to a diminishing wildlife corridor & the fragile plight of the Bee.
