My local second-hand book dealer has, like many others in these difficult times, branched out into other areas.
He sells bookish ephemera, paintings, posters, cards …
Today, while I was trying to resist going inside, I had a look through a box of cards and I pulled out one or two that particularly caught my eye.
They all featured paintings by a Cornish artist – JO MARCH – it was very strange, seeing such a familiar name in a very different context.
The cards were lovely. They catch the Cornish countryside – not the famous landmarks, but the fields and country homes that you might not notice – absolutely perfectly.
And some have a lovely touch of magic.
Here are a few for you to see:
