We are proud to present a series of beautiful (and witty) prints from John Bond's Mini Rabbit series, which are exclusive to Ralph and James and have never before been available.
Mini Rabbit will stop at nothing for cake. Off he goes, bouncing over mountains and meadows, hollering “caaaaake!,” in search of berries to finish off his mum’s latest creation.
With his colourful debut picture book, Mini Rabbit Not Lost, and its teeny, wide-eyed star, author-illustrator John Bond brilliantly captures the single-mindedness of small children and how everyday desires can spark epic quests for them. It’s also very witty, both pictorially (look closely and almost every page has berries missed by Mini Rabbit) and with the punchline, once he’s home and offered cake: “No, thank you,” he says. “Can I have some ice cream?”
Summary above an extract from The Guardian's review of Not Lost published 3rd September 2018
John Bond is an illustrator, author and artist. With a background in animation and digital media, he spent seven years working at an award winning creative agency, before penning his debut picture book ‘Mini Rabbit Not Lost’ which was nominated for best picture book in the 2019 Waterstones Book Prize. His second title, ‘Mini Rabbit Must Help’ was published in 2020 with the third book of the series, ‘Mini Rabbit Come Home’ following in 2021. We love all three!
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.
Including the frame, with mount, the framed print is 63cm wide and 37cm high.
The print itself is 53cm wide and 27cm high.
