I have bought a fair few of these Archivist Gallery cards recently, and indeed been on the receiving end of a couple from good friends, so wanted to share them. I love their bold colours and statements, and of course the fact that they celebrate London. They even have a homage to Mondrian, what more could I ask for?
They manage to be old fashioned and utilise old letterpress techniques whilst still looking very modern, and very British. And this year is a quite time to celebrate that – what with the Queen’s Jubilee, the Olympics and an increasing desire to support local and independent companies and manufacturers.
So, go buy one, and give an out of the blue card to a pal. Everyone loves post.
They are sold in Paperchase, other independent shops and galleries (I have spied them in the Design Museum) and online.

And…if you don’t just want the London theme, they even have a cheeky Paris one popped into their collection.
