Literary card featuring a quotation from Jane Eyre.
"Try to get hold of my horse's bridle and lead him to me : you are not afraid?" ... I endeavoured to catch the bridle, but it was a spirited thing, and would not let me come near its head ; I made effort on effort, though in vain ; meantime, I was mortally afraid of its trampling fore-feet. The traveller waited and watched for some time, and at last he laughed.
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë
The card has been designed in collage using a vintage illustration by F H Townsend from an 1899 edition of Jane Eyre on a background endpaper from The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith.
The image is made using papers carefully cut from well read (often disintegrating) books and assembled by hand to create the photographed/scanned image.
The card is A6 which measures 10 cm wide by 14.8 cm tall.
It is professionally printed with a finished surface on 300 gsm card. The interior is blank for your own message and there is no finish to this so that it is easy to write on with any type of pen or pencil.
Each card comes with a brown linear textured envelope.
