A selection of eye-catching handkerchiefs collected over many years by an artist and printmaker living in Devon. Handkerchiefs were used by everyone until throwaway paper tissues were invented, and were common as gifts, mementos and souvenirs. Expect the Collector's Case to be full of vibrant prints and strong graphics as well as delicately-woven and embroidered examples.
