Cambridge Imprint cards are printed in England on FSC paper of archiving quality, using vegetable oil-based inks that are friendly to the environment. Each card is printed in one or two hand-mixed inks on uncoated 90 gsm ivory stock to create a high quality matte paper with a hand-printed feel. The self-fastening wallet is also made of printed card of the same quality and there is no glue, plastic or cellophane in the packaging.
Peggy Angus was a pattern maker of the mid-twentieth century. Contemporary and friend of Eric Ravilious and Edward Bawden, independent spirit and inspired teacher, she was a painter who really found her element when she began to design patterns in the fifties, first collaborating with industry to create tiles, with which she had a great success, and then later branching out on her own with wallpapers. Her wallpapers were linocuts hand-printed in emulsion on lining paper. The few examples that survive are hidden away in private houses. Publications about her are few and it’s hard to obtain copies. You can read more about her work and life here.
Cambridge Imprint were very pleased to collaborate with the Peggy Angus Estate in producing some of her designs at a reduced scale on these cards. They have also produced a range of printed papers that could be used as gift wrap or for craft projects.
The cards are blank inside and come with accompanying envelopes.
Each card: 15cm x 15cm
