The V&A Collection
The Victoria and Albert Museum (often abbreviated as the V&A) in London is the world's largest and finest museum of decorative arts and design, housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 million objects. From this vast and varied collection, we have chosen a few images that we hope will delight those who receive them. The V&A deals in fashion and fabrics, as well as furnishings and objets d’art.
160mm x 160mm, these cards are printed on good quality art board with gloss finish. Images may vary, but you can be assured that they will all be of equal quality. Below is the range of cards we are offering.
Wings Wind (V&A Collection)

These cards are 153mm.x 127mm and are printed on 250gsm board with lustrous finish. They have no greeting inside, allowing you to use the cards throughout the year for a variety of greetings. They are so striking and unusual that they will stand out in any display of seasonal cards and will be a joy to receive.
The illustrations come from the Museum’s extensive collection, accumulated over 200 years. The original purpose of these illustrations was, of course, scientific – but they have a vibrancy that makes them beautiful in their own right.
Here is a representative sample of the illustrations. It may be necessary to change some images, but rest assured the quality will not vary. All cards are individually cello-wrapped and come with a white envelope.
