The Cigarette card- hand printed screen print with ink wash and hand applied gold leaf
A tiny cigarette card of a doulton plate fell out of one of my grandfathers natural history books girven to me. This little card probably hadn't been looked at since the 1930's
It seemed like a sign from another time- I found the real plate at the V&A, it was really inspiring
paper size 31cm x31cm
I created this print in tribute to my Grandpa who loved and studied the natural world.
