A set of cards

When I am working on the local magazine, I always join forces with photographer Lesley Anne Churchill, and we put together shoots for our front covers, fashion and interiors sections. We have been working together for about four years now, and it has been a very enjoyable learning curve! Our budgets are very small so we have to be inventive, begging and borrowing locations and using our own props (and houses), and friends' lovely daughters as models. Recently, we decided that as we put so much time into our covers, it would be nice to turn a selection of them into cards, so they hang around a bit longer. Thanks to Lesley Anne's hard work, we have now done this, and we got our first little batch this week. We used a local, family printing firm, Spiegl Press, who use traditional techniques (they even have a Heidelberg Letterpress for really old fashioned printing). We chose four designs to start with, each one representing a season.

The cards made their debut at the sale yesterday but I really need to find a vertical stand to do them justice. 

* Thanks for your feedback. The cards are available to buy at £1.50 each, or four for £5 (just specify which designs you'd like). They are fold out cards, not postcards, blank for your greeting. Postage and packing is 75p. Cheques or postal orders only at the moment. If you are interested, please drop me an email: and I will let you have my address etc.
