Merchant and Mills Notions artwork print

Postcards-2

A bit of a back story to explain this Notions artwork print: Merchant and Mills is a Drapers shop based in Hay on Wye. They sell all the dressmaking products you'd expect - from pins and scissors to thimbles and tape measures. They aim to source these from within the UK and are all sold and labelled with beautiful retro packaging. The packaging of these products, or 'notions', are what inspired this print. 

Look closely at the print and you'll see the charm of the packaging: beautifully detailed illustrations of the objects coupled with great traditional typography, that make the objects themselves instantly covetable. 

Surely the perfect print for anyone gifted with a needle, it costs £35.

Hi All, thanks for picking up on my beloved artwork - as a photographer it's been quite a challenge to move into graphic design for our little sewing company! Take a look at my main site here: http://fieldafield.com/
and the packaging as studio shots here:

Thanks again and do get in touch!
