A unique piece of Lake District art - a black and white illustration of the Cumbrian Lake District's most iconic landmarks.
Great as a gift for any Cumbrian, or as a gift for someone who loves visiting the Lakes. It could also make a lovely wedding or engagement gift, and can even be personalised with names and a date.
The illustration was drawn using pen and ink, by hand, and has then been digitally manipulated to come up with the final image. It features Skiddaw, Derwentwater, the Windermere Launch, Wordsworth's Dove Cottage, the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop, Bridge House at Ambleside, Beatrix Potter's Hilltop Farm, Keswick Pencil Museum, Moot Hall and the Castlerigg Stone Circle. There's also a little Herdwick sheep, some little sailing boats, the Bassenthwaite ospreys and a little paraglider.
I grew up in Cumbria and went to school in Keswick, so this has been a lovely project to complete - and it feels very close to my heart!
A matching greetings card is available.
The print itself is available in a standard or a larger size.
Framing for the standard size print is also available with an extra charge (for UK delivery only, sorry).
You can also choose for your print - framed or unframed - to arrive wrapped in your choice of Becka Griffin Illustration wrapping papers and tag. This is a useful option if you are running short on time or you are sending a gift direct. Please ensure you have included a message if you'd like your gift-tag to arrive already hand-written.
If you’d prefer to wrap it yourself (so you can have a look at it first) then you can add a folded sheet of gift wrap and a matching gift tag to your order.
The artwork is printed digitally onto high quality archival paper. It will not fade or discolour. It will be delivered packaged in cellophane, in a hardbacked envelope.
Frames: white and black options are made from polcore, the white option has a smooth finish and the black option has a slight wood-effect texture; the oak frame is solid oak. The frames are glazed with a quality styrene/acrylic which is not distinguishable from glass when on the wall. It's a safety conscious option, and it greatly reduces the chance of postal breakages.
The standard print measures approximately 21 x 30cm.
The large print measures approximately 30cm x 42cm and will be sent rolled in a tube.
Frames are as follows:
Black and white frames are both 1.9cm wide and 3.2cm deep - the outer dimensions are 32.5cm x 24cm - that's around 13" x 9.5".
Oak frames are 2cm wide and 1.3cm deep - total size is approx 33cm x 24cm (around 13" x 9.5").
