Two new Etsy prints

Two new prints have just been added to my Etsy shop! They’re both inspired by my growing collection of vintage ephemera, particularly Victorian newspaper advertising.

First, a poster featuring text that I came across while reading Just My Type, a fascinating book about the history of fonts. It was written as a manifesto by eminent typographer Beatrice Warde in 1932 and inspired me to have my own play with fonts and Victorian-style flourishes.

Secondly, a poster inspired by Victorian quack medicine advertising, extolling the numerous health benefits of cats – and featuring my own kitty as a model.

He couldn’t help jumping in on the photoshoot, too…

You can buy the posters from my Etsy shop, and they will soon also be available from Cabbages & Kings, a little boutique that’s just down the road from my home (and well worth a look anyway for their lovely range of prints, jewellery and homewares). Hope you like them!
