Ancient Wiltshire – set of three greetings cards
4 in stock
This set of three greetings cards depicts some old, and some ancient human interventions into the Wiltshire landscape. The country is renowned for it’s gently rolling downs and chalk horse figures, and a wealth of archaeologically significant sites such as the Avebury complex. The more you explore this area, invariably the more you find.
Each card in the set of three has a different view of one of Wiltshire’s historic features:
Cherhill Down and the White Horse (detail)
Based on one of my open-edition linocuts, this detail view shows the sweeping hill and 18th century White Horse from the wildflower-rich edge of a nearby field.
Silbury Hill (detail)
The oldest site in the set, a linocut showing the neolithic Silbury Hill from the shade of a tree on the other side of the River Kennett.
The Bratton Horse
My first woodcut print, cut from Japanese birch ply. A view of the 19th Century Bratton or Westbury White Horse. This iconic view was captured in watercolour by Eric Ravilious in 1939. My print is from roughly the same viewpoint, with a brooding sky.
Each card measures 148mm square, is blank inside and is supplied with a light-brown recycled paper envelope. Each design is available individually from the cards and stationery section of the Print Shop.
Ordered alone these cards are packaged in a card-backed envelope with additional protective layers. Delivery is included in the purchase price.
