Please do always check our homepage for up-to-date info. Our virtual shop is up and running and perfectly equipped for today's challenges. To maximise social distancing, we decided to rush to the post office only once a week from now on, to dispatch orders. Currently this is Friday afternoons on our way to grocery shopping. Stay home, stay safe and happy graphic art shopping!

Please note that many of our graphic art prints are printed on demand. We have a lot of them in stock – ready to ship – but please do check availability of prints by emailing us, if it is urgent, as we can currently unfortunately not produce new prints during the UK lockdown.

We offer smiles and direct eye contact for all, we also give away free copies of our Stereohype 2004–2014 book (please ask for a copy if we are too busy to hand them out while you are there). As in previous years please do follow the squirrel and the silver helium balloons. More info at houseofillustration.org.uk.
