Hebridean Pigeons Notecards


With Pigeon Post the envelope is integral to the letter, and the space to write in is not too daunting. It’s like Twitter, but with a pen. Once you get a correspondence going, you’ll always have your friend’s address to hand inside their latest letter. Pigeons are also the perfect size to hold a Polaroid photo, so you can slip in a selfie. And the design means each Pigeon is a small object of beauty.

If you don’t normally write letters, you’re in for an unexpected treat – the completely irrational joy of not receiving an instant reply to your message… It sounds perverse in our day and age, that having to wait can feel good. But it really does. Delayed gratification is good for the soul.

Sending one letter to one friend and waiting for one reply is entirely satisfying. It’s personal and unique; narrowcasting, not broadcasting. Romantic as it sounds, with a letter you end up with a little part of your friend, to keep forever. To tuck into a book and stumble across at some later date. A letter holds its value, and that helps sustain true friendship. Nothing digital can compare.

Scottish-based printmaker Lisa Hooper has delightfully captured the simple elegance and striking forms of oystercatchers, curlews, and ringed plovers against the gentle hues of their coastal habitats. Inspired by wonderful family holidays on the island of Tiree, Hebridean Pigeon celebrates the wonders and waders of Scottish island wildlife, bringing a ‘wee’ bit of the Hebrides to your own hearth and home.

6 Pigeons per pack – each one a different design.
