Description

Seven cards with envelopes, as above – 3 x Iceworks cards 3 x Panoramic Cards, plus ‘Two Autumns’.

In the winter of 1985-6 a young Andy Goldsworthy came to London from his home in Cumbria to work with his hands in the ice and snow on Hampstead Heath. For six weeks, using only the materials to hand – twigs, leaves, feathers, stones, and the ice and snow itself – he created a series of ephemeral sculptures while locals or visitors to the Heath watched.

    I was very pleased with these cards, as “cards”, but I was expecting from the description that they would be actual postcards. I collect postcards so obviously postcards would have been preferable. I have put them in my ephemera collection!
