I have my Kate and Wills poster up in a royal wedding themed exhibition in WICKLE in Lewes.
I haven't managed to get across yet but it should be up for a few weeks so if you are wandering around little Lewes go and check it out!

Have been spending the week in Newcastle researching future projects with a big pile of books from the Lit. and phil. (A fantastic library that allows you to withdraw books from the 1880s and is threatened with closure if it doesn't get any more funds. So if you live Newcastle way you should join!- it is well worth it)
Anyway came across these two illustrations which I liked in 'Curiosities of Popular Customs'. Swan Upping didn't used to look so tame!

I have designed a set of limited edition prints exclusively for The Shop Floor Project. Inspired by traditional country fairs I have explored a range of folk traditions that are still celebrated in different areas in the country. Sam has provided a wonderful explanation for each print on the shop floor project blog so have a look THERE.
You will be able to purchase them HERE. Enjoy!
