Karen Grout at Pulse 2012

Tuesday, 19 June 2012

Last week at London trade show Pulse 2012, illustrator Karen Grout exhibited a new collection of greetings cards. Her distinctive illustrations depict vintage objects and characters, including circus performers, fairgrounds, vintage cars, penny-farthing bicycles and market stall scenes inspired by the Victorian era.

These elements of Victoriana are a great example of WGSN-homebuildlife's 21st Century Romance macro trend, which explores the modern-day gothic.
