Canal Boat Art Cards
Henry's Signature The narrowboat 'Trinity'
Canal Boat art appears to have had its  origins in the heady days of the Industrial  Revolution. Out of necessity, whole families  often lived aboard their boats and in squalid  conditions.  After suffering much verbal  abuse from land based folk, they eventually  went on the defensive by tidying up both  their boats and themselves, adorning  everything in sight with bright colours  painted on fabric, metal and wooden items.  The world of Canal Boat Art had arrived!   For further interesting information on Canal  Boat Art, go to Narrowboat Folk Art 
‘TRINITY’
All of my cards, left blank inside for your own message, sold as packs of 4 in individual cellophane wrappers, are priced at £9.50 (inc p+p). Card sizes are 10.5 x 14.7cm (4” x 6”) 
Henry Kingsnorth - Canal Boat Artist Henry and his wife Linda
My wife Linda and I have been living aboard  ‘Trinity’ for several years and regularly travel  the canals throughout the UK. I produce  genuine hand made cards in the time honoured  fashion of the Canal Boaters in a variety of card  colours, paints and designs. Below you will see  a sample of cards that indicate various patterns  that can be found in my different sets. Any set  that you order will be totally unique as every  card that I paint will be an individual design.  THE SET YOU RECEIVE WILL BE DIFFERENT! -  Only the theme will be the same.  I am sure you will be very happy with your  ‘one-of-a-kind’ purchase.
