Hand­made cards are ir­re­sistible trea­sures – beau­ti­ful pieces of art in their own right. They sit so close to my to heart. I make, col­lect, and run a cam­paign about them and now I’ve even writ­ten a book, House of Cards, on them too. Top de­sign­ers join me on a mis­sion to ban­ish e-cards to the cy­ber grave­yard, be­cause noth­ing beats the un­ex­pected joy of sift­ing through bills to dis­cover a hand­writ­ten card. Whether you fancy learn­ing a new medium, dream of turn­ing your hobby into a busi­ness, or sim­ply pre­fer to ad­mire won­der­ful de­signs, the book has some­thing for ev­ery­one. As those who fol­low the Just a Card cam­paign know, there’s so much more to cards than just pretty pic­tures. Ev­ery time you buy ‘just a card’, you’re sup­port­ing our won­der­ful cre­ative com­mu­nity and keep­ing artists in busi­ness. So roll up your sleeves, cre­ate the keep­sakes of to­mor­row, and spread the hand­made love. Oh, and it’s my birth­day on 4th July – don’t for­get my card!
