Thank you Dad!
Let's face it, dads do an awful lot for us and whilst we might silently appreciate them, we might also forget to tell them how amazing and loved they are as often as we should.
This acrostic style poem penned by award-winning poet and artist Lizzie Mole was written to celebrate brilliant fathers everywhere and to thank them for all they do and are. The first letter of each line is foiled in a metallic finish and spells out THANK YOU DAD which we think is a pretty important thing to say.
The perfect gift for Father's Day, a special birthday, or to give to the Father of the bride on your big day, it’s almost certainly a big day for him too!

Our frames are handmade in Brighton by a highly skilled framer specialising in hand-finishing. We've chosen a simple hand-painted white wooden frame to complement our poem prints.
The frame has been designed with a recess, which means there is a space between the the print and the glazing. This creates a professional gallery-style finish, not found in high street frames.
The frame is made from sustainably sourced pine and is glazed with picture grade acrylic.

The rock who keeps me steady
Helps me stand on solid ground, with
Arms that tightly hold me
No other hug I've found can make the world seem better, I
Know I'll be ok,
You've taught me to keep trying
Or to find another way. I think I
Understand now, how much you really
And one day
Dad, I only hope
I'll be a lot like you.
