Contents: 1 X 128 Page Hardback With 200 Colour Illustrations Author: Sarah Hamilton Author Bio - Sarah Hamilton is an artist and designer based in South London, whose work is inspired by colour, nature and midcentury design. She began her career as an artist handprinting greetings cards for Paperchase, The Conran Shop and Habitat, and cards are still a significant part of her practice. In 2014 she started the Just a Card campaign to support independent artists and retailers, after seeing yet another small gallery close down. Its message is that even the smallest sale plays a huge part in keeping independent design businesses afloat.
