Highgate Cemetery is perhaps the most famous of London's 'Magnificent Seven' Victorian cemeteries. Opened in 1839, it is the final resting place of some of London's most influential inhabitants.
This design imagines the afterlife of three of the cemetery's artistic and literary talents: painter and model Lizzie Siddal, artist and Spiritualist medium Georgiana Houghton, and poet Christina Rossetti. The trio relax in front of the picturesque Tree of Lebanon in the cemetery's centre, and a border inspired by the Egyptian Avenue frames the otherworldly scene.
The design was created using pen and ink, watercolours, charcoal pencil, and Photoshop. It is digitally printed on a heavy-weight, matte, A6 (10.5cm x 14.8cm) postcard. The reverse side is blank except for the shop logo on the bottom edge.
