The Quintessentially English range is created by award winning Devon artist, Becky Bettesworth. Her quotes and vintage style seaside prints and posters are reminiscent of the 1930s railway travel posters. Becky's fun use of colour in these pictures will bring back many a happy holiday memory. A reminder of English countryside days and happy family times in nature. Fresh air, good country living, carefree days and sunshine holidays.
Becky Bettesworth, was commissioned to illustrate the front covers of five Darling Buds of May novels by HE Bates. The novels which are published by Penguin Books were released in May 2018, to celebrate 60 years of the Larkins!
Becky has then released the artwork she produced for the book covers as five unique A4 prints, which are available to buy individually or as a special set.
Becky's unique style of vintage travel posters and prints are popular across the country and were recognised by Penguin Books as a ‘perfick’ fit. They said her artwork, with its very English sensibilities, hit the perfect note of wistful nostalgia for a bygone era but with a modern twist. They comment that her artworks for the Larkin series are absolutely beautiful; instantly inviting the reader into experience the world that H. E. Bates created and are very excited about the release.
