Thank you card


Partial image of a thank you card commission.
300gsm Arches hotpress paper, gouache ground, lettering with same gouache as ground, 3/4 Brause nib all lettering. Hand made little tissue paper toggles, the tissue used to soak up the coloured ground ... tricky but fun!  Inside hand sewn four double pages for multiple signatures with hand painted logo of the company on each page.
Full size 500mm x 400mm - or there abouts!

Pen rest peace crane says "very interesting little baubles".
