Library Cards

I was asked last year to work on designing twelve library cards for four London library authorities. Despite being far too busy I said yes. Who wouldn’t. Twelve credit card sized images. Twelve small keys that unlock a whole world of books. Twelve cards that encourage people to join the library.

So far three of the images have been made into cards and I have just completed the artwork for the next three.



The brief: whatever you want please, as beautiful as you can.

The cards are for Harrow, Ealing, Croydon and Hounslow.

Join the library. Here’s how.

About Jackie

I am an artist and writer. I live in a small house by the sea in Wales where I write, paint, walk and watch and dream of bears and whales. I love to read, have a wish for wings and prefer the company of animals to that of humans, though at times I can be quite friendly. I am learning how to work with wood engraving tools and hoping to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    any chance of Welsh libraries following suit? Monmouthshire has several of your books in the children’s section and still has a budget for buying new books.
