Landshapes Postcard Set
This limited edition postcard set by David Lemm includes a series of screen printed postcards, a print and sticker set inspired by a day exploring the highest peak on the Isle of Skye.
David Lemm was commissioned to explore The Cuillin, the spectacular and iconic mountains on the Isle of Skye, and create a limited edition artwork. Thinking about the mountain as a whole, rather than just the summit, David decided to climb Sgurr Alasdair, which at 3,255 feet is the highest island summit in the United Kingdom.
With the invaluable help of Skye Adventure, David ascended Sgurr Alasdair, via the famous Great Stone Chute. This experience provided the inspiration for a series of seven postcards depicting his journey alongside a poster and sticker set, packaged together in a signed, screen printed box.
The A6 postcards have been printed by hand by the artist and are individually numbered. Each references a different part of the climb, drawing attention to the varied aspects of the climb.
The A4 folded risograph poster is individually signed and numbered by the artist.
Signed, limited edition of 100.
