Description

My large colour linocut of fishing boats at Rock-a-Nore beach, Hastings, East Sussex reproduced as a greetings card.

The card is 5″ by 7″ or 127mm high by 178mm wide landscape format with the fold at the top (tent fold). The image has a narrow white border around it. It comes with diamond flap white envelope and clear cellophane sleeve. The card weight is 300gsm and is blank inside for your own message.

It would also look good framed!

The image is based on sketches I’ve made at the end of Hastings’ beach, closest to where I live. It’s called Rock-a-Nore. This is such an interesting spot. The narrow streets of the Old Town open up to the sea front, cliffs and shingle beach – with the Country Park curving away along the coast above the cliffs. Most of the fishing fleet is “parked” here when not out at sea, together with their winches, tractors and tall net huts. You can buy fresh fish from them in the mornings. TIP: the smaller “shops” off the roadside on the beach are cheaper. The East Hill Lift funicular railway is also here. I can occasionally be found working there, and many’s the time I’ve watched the fishermen returning from my bird’s eye viewpoint in the top station.
