Just a note to wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year. Thank you all for your continued support in sending material.
2014 promises to be an exciting year with European and Local elections. It is also a big year for myself as I will have my first exhibition of Election Leaflets and posters in The National Print Museum. Its something I’m very excited about.
