The Seven Ages of Mandelion - Blank A6 Greetings Card/ Notecard

"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely flowers..."

Inspired by Shakespeare's "seven ages of man" speech from As You Like It, and my enduring love for the much-maligned dandelion, this little vintage-style pen-and-ink illustration shows the passing of time through the figure of a dandelion-headed Edwardian English gent, from tiny seed through to an old head blowing into the wind, starting the cycle all over again.

A small A6 size card (148 x 105 mm, 5.8 x 4.1 in). Black digital print on smooth cream 240gsm card, with a 120gsm cream envelope. Left blank for whatever occasion you have in mind, but if you'd like me to add a message, either handwritten or printed, just get in touch. I can also print it without the text on the front, or with alternate text, if required.

Could also be framed (see last picture) as a unique surreal art print, either by you or by the recipient. I can sign the card in pencil to the front or back if desired, otherwise it will come unsigned.

A lovely piece of vintage-style stationery, and perfect for that message you've been meaning for ages to send to an old friend, but just haven't found the time...

A copy of this artwork forms part of a permanent collection of artworks installed at the newly re-opened Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon (look out for it if you visit!).

This artwork will soon be available as a larger format, limited edition hand-printed letterpress print- just get in touch if you'd like to reserve a copy.

If you are interested in this art, or any other piece, in a different format please get in touch.
