NOT ON THE HIGH STREET - petra boase

I love these neon Riso prints from UK designer Petra Boase spotted at Not on the High Street recently. Petra has illustrated all kinds of animals with a beautiful retro feel and used them on A4 prints and greetings cards. Petra is based in Norwich, England where is known for her eclectic products and has previously written books and appeared on television. The business was established in 1999 by Petra, but is now a collaboration between herself and husband Russell.The pair draw on their skills in textile design and Children's book illustration.You can find the Riso prints, cards, party invitations, embroidery patches, party invites and much more online here.
