Product Description

5 cards per pack

Larkin moved into 105 Newland Park, Hull in 1974, describing it as an ‘ugly little house’. Its current owner, Miriam Porter, has transformed it beautifully, proudly installing a blue plaque and displaying on a balcony the preeminent Larkin Toad, depicting the poet himself. The picture references the 1976 poem, ‘Morning at last: there in the snow/ Your small blunt footprints come and go’. The garden in Newland Park was the scene of Larkin’s accident with a hedgehog, captured in ‘The Mower’.

This original painting has been produced especially for the Philip Larkin Society by Hull artist Tony Denison, who has exhibited his work across the UK and Europe. We thank Tony for his generosity.

The greeting card is blank on the inside and is suitable for a Christmas message or for any other occasion.
