5. Welcome to Sutton Hoo leaflet - linocut illustrations

Updated: Jan 17, 2020

Several of my linocut illustrations have been used for the ‘Welcome to Sutton Hoo’ leaflet.


On the cover is an illustration of Edith Pretty. Inside are illustrations of an Anglo-Saxon ship with a curlew, Tranmer House, the Sutton Hoo gold belt buckle, copper butterfly, nightingale bird and archaeologists excavating.


The leaflet gives visitor information and a map of walks in the grounds.

In the foreground is a linocut illustration of curlew wading in the mud flats of the estuary. In the background an Anglo-Saxon ship being is being rowed across the River Deben. The design shows the waves of the flowing water and clouds in the sky.
