Ed and Helen Povey moved their business Place in Print, which specialises in location-related artwork, to the Ludlow area from London. Ed’s family is from the area and they were excited to embrace a new lifestyle with their young daughter, Evvie.
The couple are in the process of renovating a rural home in Munslow, which also accommodates their business. As far as the couple are concerned nothing can beat this county for beauty. Place in Print has a very wide selection of quirky illustrations from all over Great Britain including from Shropshire and surrounding areas.
For example, ‘A Walk Around Ludlow’ is a wonderfully evocative illustrated map, printed using their in-house Giclée printer (Giclée is a fine art printing process which combines pigment inks with archival paper to create bright prints which don’t fade).
There is also a map featuring the contours of Ludlow which is fascinating, and a very novel Shropshire Typographic Parish Map which uses parish names to make up the shape; well worth a look even if only to marvel at the time it must have taken!
The couple were recently commissioned by the new shop at St Laurence’s to produce a new logo for use on bags, tea towels, prints etc. Although the shop opening has been delayed due to Covid-19, you can see the image on their Instagram profile.
