A Tale Of Three Cities

When a new baby is born an Ex Libris stamp is the perfect gift (and a somewhat predictable one if you're friends with me), something to mark their arrival which they'll be able to use into adulthood. We're strong believers in personalising designs, not just with a name, but with something about the recipient. It's difficult with babies though -  yet to develop interests and personalities themselves - but geography and family heritage can be a fruitful source.... 

Here are three playful world-city designs done as gifts: a black cab for London-boy Carsten; a New York taxi for half-American Ezra; and the Manley ferry for Sydney-born Lara, complete with Kookaburra.

Not sure a dodgy Skoda Octavia from Leeds would have the same impact... but we can't all hail from iconic centres of world culture!!!
