Wittily illustrating the world - Katie Cardew Illustrations

If you were at Burghley this year, a wander round the (enormous) shopping village would have taken you past the packed stand of Katie Cardew Illustrations. Along with most of Burghley’s attendees, we fell instantly in love with her sell-out ‘I’d rather be at Burghley’ print and we wanted to bring you more of her work, as well as revealing a little more about the artist behind the designs. With a background in architectural illustration, which can be seen in her wonderful drawings of such diverse subjects as Moscow’s St. Basil’s Cathedral and the Taj Mahal, Katie has found a real niche for herself in capturing British life in a quietly witty and charming format.

So what influences the collections? Sophie primarily cites her mother Anna O'Neill, the

5 ways to survive Bonfire Night with your horse

With Bonfire Night fast approaching and with impatient firework buyers already trying out their purchases, we thought it was time to look at some things you can do to keep your horse (and you!) safe and well over the 5th November celebrations. 1. Where will the fireworks be? As we near the 5th November, keep your ears and eyes open for any adverts or comments about nearby firework displays. This is easier said than done, as it’s likely that only the official displays will be advertised in local press or on noticeboards, but harnessing the dual power of word of mouth and social media may help you to find out if any of your neighbours are also planning on letting off their own fireworks. 2.
