New Greeting Cards by Author & Illustrator Laurent Moreau
Adding to their collection of beautifully illustrated, contemporary greetings cards Betty and Dupree have recently unveiled a series of new designs from author and illustrator of several children’s books, Laurent Moreau. Living and working in Strasbourg, France, imagery for the six new greetings cards is taken from Laurent’s most recent book “Après”, published by Hélium editions in Paris.
Inspired by his love of nature and growing up in the countryside, Laurent creates fresh, modern images decorated with plants and animals. The artwork is created almost entirely by hand, eschewing the use of a computer, Laurent enjoys the tactile nature of his materials and is passionate about traditional printing techniques such as engraving, and silkscreen:
“I’m not so at ease with the computer, so I draw with pencils, paint with gouache, I cut and paste… I change techniques. I like being spontaneous, the gesture, the line, little dots…”
Beautiful and original, the 4 x 6″ cards are printed on premium textured card and matched with coordinating coloured envelopes.
The featured greetings cards retail at £2.50. See more at the Betty and Dupree website.
