We love us some paper products here at Found. Letterpress, screen-printed or block-printed we’re keen on them all, and every so often we’re able to marry that with another affection, illustration. Robert Fresson is a Falmouth University College graduate whose style caught our eye instantly. He grabs your attention with his detail, limited-palette and references to yesteryear without suggesting that we need to Keep Calm in any way.
Some of you may remember his hand from the prints we carried last year, including Traveller’s Tales and Loggerheads (only one left in store!).
Now in the thick of post-graduate study at the Royal College of Art following a stint of study in Japan, Robert designed a poster celebrating Bath using the mighty Great Western Rail and travel posters as inspiration.
An early sketch.
