It has been an delight to collaborate with Britta Teckentrup in bringing prints to life from her collection of interactive picture books: Neon Leon, Leap Frog and Firefly Home.
Everyone knows that chameleons are the best at fitting in. But not Leon. Leon is neon! In fact, he's so bright he keeps all the other chameleons awake at night. But poor Leon is lonely, so he goes off in search of somewhere he can blend in.
In Britta Teckentrup's brilliant interactive picture book, children can can help Leon on his journey by counting his steps, sending him to sleep and giving him lots of reassurance when he's feeling down. But will he ever find a place he can fit in...?

THE PRINT AND FRAME
The art is printed on Hahnemaühle German Etching paper (310gsm), a conservation-grade high quality archival paper. This heavyweight etching paper has a fine surface texture and is one of the most popular media worldwide for higher quality artwork printing.
The print is framed by hand in Cambridgeshire in the UK, using only European sourced PEFC™ and FSC approved woods. Frames are Fine Art Trade Guild accredited which means they meet strict conservation standards and are built to last for generations to come.
We use Clarity+ glazing which is a high-quality acrylic glass alternative, offering high UV resistance which doesn't yellow over time, is not easily scratched and is safe for use in children's bedrooms.
Your framed print will arrive with D-rings and cord already attached, ready to hang right out of the box.
