Keep Calm and Rock On card by Nancy & Betty

N&B keep calm

Just when you think the slogan has died a death, some new variation on the ubiquitous 'Keep Calm and Carry On' theme pops up. This time it's courtesy of Nancy & Betty, with their Keep Calm and Rock On card. 

It replaces the well known crown of the original design with an image of an Eames rocker to illustrate the command. Nancy and Betty clearly must have a thing about Eames rockers if you compare it to their rocking new home card we previously featured. These sell in packs of five, each coming with their own envelope, and cost £6 for a set.

Make a City London postcard set

Make a City London

Yesterday we showed you tiles based on postcards from the '50s and '60s but for an alternate tourist take with a distinctly retro feel, try this Make A City London postcard set

The set features five designs to cut-out and stick together that are based around a very nostalgic view of the city including rock and roll and fish and chips and, of course, the Routemaster bus. The designs are executed in bright colours and have a very Pop feel. In fact, given the subject matter of the postcards they'd have probably been as applicable in 'Swinging London' as they are now. 

At only £3 for a set, they're as cheap as the chips they illustrate.
