I Love nature inspired patterns with a vintage feel and Mrs Eliot Books does this in style. Based in London artist and designer Francesca Iannaccone hand makes a wonderful range of concertina plywood books, prints, and cards. Using patterned papers, fabric, wallpaper and bold shapes these collage designs are given a storybook feel with snippets of text. Visit Francesca's lovely site, Etsy, Dwanda,or Folksy shops to see the unique collection of affordable work (look out for the holiday offers) and have a read of the blog for lots of inspiration and news.
P.S Some of Francesca's cards are available in my little shop.
