SUSSEX MOTHS (2011)
Our first collaboration with Aardvark On Sea came in the form of the Sussex Moths Print. Lesley from Aardvark had been an avid collector of ancient Moth names for some time, admiring the beautiful contradictions and imagery they inspire. Following the Hastings Moth project Aardvark approached us with the idea of a collaborative print. Together us, Lesley and Pea scoured the dozens of name cards and settled on seven. We researched the Moths forms and set about the illustrations while Aardvark chose complimentary fonts.
