A classic literature card featuring a quotation from the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare.
'Tis in my memory locked,
And you yourself shall keep the key of it.
Hamlet Act I Scene III
The card has been designed in collage using an illustration by Gordon Browne from The Henry Irving Shakespeare edition of Hamlet with an endpaper from As You Like It published in 1908.
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.
