For the little dragon in your life, a poem to celebrate all that’s in store for a little boy as his story begins.
Yes, there may be some fire-breathing along the way (we’re thinking the teenage years!) but for each page that’s turned, a new legend is emerging.
This touching poem has been lovingly written by our founder Lizzie Mole and then typed on an Olivetti Valentine typewriter, adding a timeless appeal to her words. The poem comes complete with scorch-mark and (if you look closely) glowing embers, beautifully foiled in rose gold.
The print would make a wonderful christening keepsake, or a thoughtful gift for a friend on the arrival of a baby boy.
Paper size A4 - 21 x 29.7 cm
All our poems are printed on the highest quality archival papers from heritage paper merchant GF Smith.
The fine-grain smooth art paper is 240gsm and has been selected specifically for our printing and foiling, to ensure a beautiful finish.
Each print is hand-embossed with The Original Poet's initialled branding.
A4 outside frame size - 24.2 x 30.3 cm with depth of 3.7 cm
A3 outside frame size - 32.5 x 45 cm with depth of 3.7 cm
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.
