Australia comes to Town

Have you been to the British Museum recently?  If not, you're in for a bit of a surprise as the picture below shows what it currently looks like!

Over the summer there is a series of exhibitions and events focusing on Australia, including an Australian landscape created in the heart of London on the Museum’s forecourt created in partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

...and what's this got to do with paper I hear you ask? Well using some of the stunning artworks and imagery from Australia, the British Museum has created some fantastic invitations for events and private views.

The private view invitations for Australia Landscape (4pp)  and Baskets and Belonging (6pp) are A5 size and are printed on Omnia 280gsm which was chosen so the vibrant colours (especially the blue) looks even and bright (...and it does!) whilst also retaining the detail in the images (baskets) 

Design is by Helen Adrados who is one of the designers in the British Museum design team (marketing), headed up by Ann Lumley. They always seem to put out excellent printed literature.

Print is by Fulmar Colour.

...and time to hurry along to see the lovely garden and exhibition. The garden is there until 16th October and the exhibition on 11th September.
