Rocket 68 retro inspired greetings cards
Recently during an online wander we came across a set of superbly illustrated 'camping' themed cards, which we thought were just perfect to feature on the camper classics section of the yay retro! blog:
These totally fab tent and caravan cards are available from Rocket68, a new greetings card company run by illustrator and graphics lecturer Jill White. We just adore the way the designs are overlaid onto vintage 'fabric-like' patterns, and the printmaking quality of the work - they'd be amazing framed!
Jill (originally from Trinidad in the West Indies), now based in Somerset, trained at The Bournemouth College of Art and Southampton Institute of Art. She tells us that Rocket68 has a definite nostalgic, vintage lilt, with card ranges including retro inspired animals - 'Wilderness Prints', to the ever changing patterns of the 'Kaleidoscope range' which includes the camping cards.
