Merry-go-round cards all currently feature the work of Australian artists, including Nadia Turner and GhostPatrol as well as childrens book illustrators such as Shirley Barber, Ann James and Shaun Tan.
The ongoing theme for Merry-go-round images is “earth- love”. Ideally the art holds some kind of ‘joy’, or celebrates nature in some way. Sometimes it’s hard to then match that with an image that would work for someone buying or receiving a greeting card that could be sent for all different sorts of occasions… and is just generally beautiful… but that’s the aim.
The hope is that by celebrating the beauty of the earth, it helps us remember our own connection to it.
