At Water Street Gallery we have over 800 hundred card designs for any and all occasions! Though we do provide the usual categories and notecard packs that you would expect from any seller, here we know that cards are so much more than the pre-printed sentiment written inside; so, we’ve curated a collection where the main message on the card is the creative image, and leave the words to you. For contemporary designs from a range of talented 20th century printmakers, take a look at Art Angels whose quality cards are carefully made and display stunning detail. And, if the vintage is more your style we offer a selection from Fitzwilliam Museum, Keyhole cards, and The Pattern Book. For a statement piece of art combined with a greeting card, check out Forever and Roger La Borde’s stunning 3D and lasercut cards that will stand out on any mantlepiece. Plus, we also have light-hearted, inclusive cards with an ironic twist by Simon Drew and Pakabu for a myriad of occasions.
As well as greeting cards we also provide a selection of illustrated guidebooks of the local area, that are as suited for functionality as well as for display on your bookshelf or side table. With each map lovingly drawn by Christopher Goddard, they are well researched and full of historic and botanic interested, to help you find new ways through old country. Paired with one of our greeting cards and wrapped in our selection of wrapping papers, these books make an easy yet thoughtful gift for anyone in your life.
When the muse strikes turn to our notebooks and diaries section to jot down your thoughts and embrace your creativity. Find inspiration in the pages of journals and diaries by Paperblank, whose beautiful covers emulating astounding artwork are designed to celebrate human craft. Or, for a more subtle piece, try Goodeehoo’s eco-friendly vegan leather notebooks that use PU rather than PVC, which is greener in production and will decompose naturally over time, making an ethical, as well as thoughtful, gift or treat. Regardless of your chosen style, all notebooks at Water Street Gallery are chosen to create an elevated writing experience whether it be your daily to do lists or the next bestselling novel.
For the holidays and the turn of the new year we are updating our shelves with an outstanding choice of advent and yearly calendars. From the studio of Simon Drew, we have 2021 calendars and playing card packs that will cheer you up on the even the most boring of days, as well as stunning, nature inspired calendars from local artist Sophie Cunningham. And, celebrate Christmastime in style with beautiful advent cards and calendars; counting down the days until Christmas will never be so charming.
An exciting new rangeby Wald, a West Yorkshire based print workshop will soon be available.
