Description

A poster taken from a six colour lino and letterpress print, showing one of the most summery of sights, a field of sunflowers which borders the lavender fields at Hitchin Lavender Farm, England. This is a unique piece of artwork, whether you love the style of these traditional yet modern prints or have special memories of the area.

Hitchin Lavender Farm is a family run flower farm, an incredibly picturesque venue in which you can wander among the 25 miles of lavender row and pick your own fresh flowers. The sunflowers which grow later in the summer months are a real beauty, and I wanted to capture the golden glow which is set off beautifully by the lavender behind.

The print is part of a series of pieces of artwork based on scenes in and around Hitchin, in which I wanted to celebrate my favourite parts of the town I was brought up in. Reviving the traditional techniques of linocutting, the original prints were made from drawings which I transferred to lino, and made using the reduction technique in three or four colours. Finished with lettering hand printed using vintage letterpress type, the original prints for the Sunflowers print were limited to a run of 20. I hope they will resonate with others who love the farm too, as well as those who appreciate the unique nature of a linocut print.

The print sold in this listing is your choice from one of the originals, or a high quality digital reproduction of the original artwork on 300gsm card, made as a poster in either A3 or A4 (select your size when ordering). It will be sent with a cardboard backing in a cellophane sleeve.

Bought this fabulous card before and would buy it again - just have to make sure I don't forget who I've given it to! Although, honestly, who could be upset by getting the same gorgeous card more than once!

I love this print. It captures St Mary's Church and the market so well, a great depiction of the spirit of Hitchin.
