First of all, thank you to all who bought the Larkin Christmas cards- they sold like hot cakes (to use a cliché) – it was fantastic to see them flying off to our supporters and PLS members all around the world and popping up on tweets all through December. We are planning to produce two new Christmas cards for 2018 in the light of the success of the cards from this year.
Our original Larkin t-shirts have sold so well over the last year that we saw the last one disappear just before Christmas and we decided it was time for a fresh look. As we know, Larkin loved bright colours in his stationery and clothing and we thought we would reflect that in the colours for the new t-shirts, with Raspberry and Winter Emerald. We have simplified the design and introduced a ladies shape as well as the traditional men’s tees- now in two sizes- and they were printed by the excellent Hull company D3 who made our original t-shirts. We have also added a lovely timeline poster and some new cards. Any profits from our sales goes back into the promotion of Larkin’s work and life. Look out for more items later in the year!
