The distribution part of the business began in 1987 and works mainly with collections published by major museums including The Ashmolean Museum. We also distribute greeting cards, giftwrap, advent calendars and Christmas cards published by Jarndyce Books, Aardvark Books and Artisan Cards.
The publishing part started in 2010 with a move to Herefordshire, an area with an abundance of artistic talent working in every medium. Approaching artists whose work we would happily have on our walls we have built up a stable of 9 artists.
The artists are Victoria Keeble, Anna Ravenscroft, Ros Garratt, Rhoda Partridge, Seren Bell, Jemima Jameson, Christopher Rowlatt, Bernard Austin, Chris Neale, Kay Leverton, Hester Cox, Angie Rooke, Sophie Windham Janis Goodman, Charlotte Fawley and Flora McLachlan
All greeting cards are published on high quality paper, they are blank inside and all have the same distinctive brown envelope. The giftwrap is from Christopher Rowlatts collection of his own marbling work and is published on high quality uncoated paper.
