Monograms, Maps and Mushrooms

I am finally designing a lino cut for our new address cards.  I tried to print some ‘B’s at the end of last year as a bit of research for the monogrammed bed shirt I made Angela for christmas, but they didn’t quite work as I needed different ink…Our cards will be based on a map of La Bourrade – This drawing was given to me in Nepal and I’ve shamefully forgotten who gave it to me.Hopefully the final print will be something like the beautiful Twelfth Night postcard on the left.  I also love John Tenniel’s illustrations for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and quite like the fact I bought my second hand copy because of the gorgeous hardback cover only to find all the illustrations were coloured in!

This morning we also found our first mushrooms …
