HANK WYTHENSHAWE CANADIAN LYNX - NOTE CARD
ON THE BACK OF THE CARD:
Hank Wythenshawe Canadian Lynx is the proprietor of a most charming gift shop in town, called Trove. Packed to the hilt, it is a wonderland of colour and zazzle. But it is during moonlighting hours that his most important work is done. After flipping the sign on the door to 'Please Visit Tomorrow', Hank disappears up a narrow stairwell to the storeroom, and pulls a selection of packages down from the overhead shelves.
Several times each year, Hank travels from coast to coast in search of treasures for his shop. On these trips, he also purchases a few additional one-of-a-kind goodies for some of the one-of-a-kind folks in town, just so they know they are appreciated.
Every evening, he delights in choosing just the right gift for just the right person, and finds almost as much pleasure in selecting the ribbon and wrap from the myriad rolls running floor to ceiling on the opposite wall.
Still under cover of the collied night, Hank finally heads on his way, with satchel slung over his shoulder. Springing from fencepost to rooftop, he moves quickly to have the parcels delivered before dawn's first light - sometimes to friends, sometimes to strangers - that they might unwrap a little gift of delight and joy. Isn't it funny: the more you give, the more you have.

We print on Canson® Infinity Arches® Aquarelle Rag luxuriously thick 310 gsm, 100% cotton paper. This archival, matte paper with a felt-marked finish and even natural grain showcases crisp detail and vibrant colour. It is mould-made by master papermakers using one of the world’s few remaining cylinder mould machines. The company has been making very high quality art papers such as this since 1492.
Our 90# envelopes come from G.F Smith’s FSC-certified, rich-hued Colorplan range. We fell in love with a beautiful goldenrod shade. According to the ‘World’s Favourite Colour’ study, people associate the feeling of joy with this colour. Also, this is the very shade that enrobes our trusty #2. As all of our images are hand drawn in pencil, we thought it appropriate to give a nod of appreciation.
We donate a portion of gross sales to animal welfare.
