We mount all the illustrations in a high quality bevelled white mount and also offer contemporary wooden frames from £24 - Black (2cm wide), white (2.5cm w), oak (2.5cm w), painted/limed white where you can still see some wood grain (3cm w), all supplied with Pilkington glass and a mdf backing board. The extra large frames have a shabby-chic feel with a distressed paint effect, showing the grain beneath with integrated hanging hook, ready for display. These larger frames are glazed with perspex for safe delivery. We use a high grade Quinn Perspex with perfect optical qualities (so it looks completely clear) and are UV stabilised (so they won't discolour over time).
