Norwich Pubs

A new limited edition screen print, designed especially for Norwich-based print collective Print To The People's Year in Print scheme. 

'Norwich Pubs' is a celebration of the public houses, inns, taverns, alehouses, tap-rooms, watering-holes & shabeens of old Norwich city, a town that once famously had a church for each week of the year and a pub for each day! Some are still very much in existence, others lost in the mists of Time, remembered only (if at all) by plaques in the pavement or by the names of Streets (Golden Dog Alley, Flower Pot Yard, Lobster Lane, Queen of Hungary Yard, etc., etc..)

Stiffkey Stores

The letterpress flyer I designed for the sumptuous and delightful Stiffkey Stores, at Stiffkey on the stunning north Norfolk coastline.

The design shows an image of the counter and top there, made from old wooden fruit-crates, laden and filled with beautiful things - great coffee, delicious cakes, flowers, books, toys, bags, &c, &c.

Diamond Anniversary

An invitation I designed and printed to celebrate the Diamond Wedding anniversary of my lovely parents-in-law. Congratulations Pat and Chas!

A swan as symbol of their graceful journey through life, the flower in its bill for love's blooming and the crown for its nobility.

Year in Print - Proofing & Printing

A great day colour mixing, proofing and laying down the first two layers (of three) of a new limited edition screen print for the Year in Print scheme. Many thanks to Jo Stafford, Paul McNeill & Toby Rampton at Print to the People in Norwich!

Can you guess the theme? Hope to print the final, outline layer later this week.
