Sarah Jane Studios

Just before Christmas we were so excited to receive our first set of prints from Sarah Jane. They are one of the topics I've been wanting to blog about for awhile as I think they are so special and remind me of illustrations I recall from my own childhood. They're simple and sweet yet beautifully detailed and coloured. They are printed with archival pigment ink on heavy weight Hahnemuhle Museum etching paper that is 350gsm, natural white, 100% rag and acid free. I especially love the tea party prints, in fact my current mailing cards are also printed with one of the tea party themes. I sent one to a friend not so long ago and she's framing it to hang on the wall in her daughter's bedroom.

As it is always so much easier finding lovely things for girls rooms, and I dare I admit it - more fun eek - we're really striving to expand our range for the little fellas this year. In light of that, have to say I'm really liking SJ's new dinosaur print. I'll be the first to admit that I'm not crazy about pterodactyls strung from the ceiling or snarling jurassic-parkesque creatures scattered all over the floor but I do think I'd be very happy to put this print up on the wall and feel very much like I was participating in the theme...
