This is a very old design which I hadn’t looked it in years and now that I do so with newly-minted eyes, I like it rather more than I did at the time. It is, in fact, a straight scan of an old cushion so it didn’t take much designing!

I’m delighted to have sold two of these greeting cards. It’s a montage of British actresses from the late 19th and early 20th century from my theatrical postcard collection. Those of you interested in theatre greats will be happy to learn that Dame Ellen Terry features three times, for which I make no apology! If young actors have not heard of her, they have no right to be on the stage. [Ed. Too obstinate?] As the late Alan Rickman said — and I’m oft repeating —  “The profession should be and is a kind of relay race – about information, opinions and passions being passed on.” [Theatregoer Magazine, November 2001]

Features / Hat Heads 25 March 2014 / Inspired by Edward Steichen’s headshot of Hollywood actress Gloria Swanson covered in lace (Museum of Modern Art). / Photoshop / Louise Brooks: Hello-Tuesday / Wallpaper: MGB-Stock /

The still is from a 1928 film, Beggars of Life, where Brooks plays a girl who disguises herself in beggar’s clothing to escape the police after killing her abusive stepfather. Directed by William Wellman, it also stars Wallace Beery, Richard Arlen and Roscoe Karns, and was based on a book by Jim Tully, published in 1924.

Le Déjeuner dans l’atelier by Édouard Manet is one of my favourite paintings. Some classics, I find, can pall after too many viewings — postcards, chocolate boxes and so forth. Not Le Déjeuner. Not for me.
The French artist Édouard Manet (1832-1883) might well have gone into the law had he followed the dictates of his upper-class family but his passion for art held sway. Influenced in his style by the work of Francisco José de Goya and Diego Velázquez, he chose subjects not hitherto considered suitable for art such as gypsies and beggars or nudes alongside the fully-clothed and strove towards a form of realism that paved the way for modernism. Luncheon in the Studio, or Le Déjeuner dans l’atelier, which Manet painted in 1868, is on display at the Bayerische Staatsgemaldesammlungen in Munich.

Paper Type: Poster Paper (Semi-Gloss)

  • 53 lb., 7.9 point thick poster paper
  • Recommended for large-format posters
  • Semi-gloss finish
  • More paper types available under “Paper Options”
  • Add a premium quality frame as an essential accessory
