The Papersmith Series — Caroline Kent, Scribble & Daub

The tale of Scribble & Daub is a heartwarming testament to the enduring power of hand-written correspondence. It all began following a serendipitous exchange with an old friend, and a special letter sent to Liberty’s. Caroline’s cards are now sought after by the likes of Vogue, and are stocked in department stores and independent boutiques the world over. When wanderlust came calling, Caroline left her role in Edinburgh organising exhibitions for leading contemporary artists, but her curatorial flair still sings in the the work she creates today. Upon buttery letterpress printed paper, brilliantly coloured inks dance between delicate line drawings....
