Natural History Museum has launched a range of Wildlife Photographer of the Year cards with Museums & Galleries.
The 31 card collection launches this month (January) and features an array of photography that celebrates the wonder of the natural world.
From hawksbill turtles, hippopotamuses and hummingbirds to leopards, lions and lizards, the greeting card range showcases the sheer breadth of nature photography that is entered into the prestigious competition every year.
In addition to the award-winning photography featured on each card, the packaging solution – a plastics-free ecoband that neatly ties card and envelope together – also highlights the importance of finding sustainable solutions that are kind to the planet.
“We are delighted to have worked alongside the team at Museums & Galleries to develop such a beautiful collection of greeting cards that showcase some of the incredible photography on offer from the archives of the competition,” commented Maxine Lister, head of licensing at NHM. “Not only do the cards highlight the true diversity of nature on our planet, but they are also kind to the planet as they come with minimal, paper-based packaging and are fully recyclable.”
Ben Dorney, creative director at Museums & Galleries, continued: “For us Wildlife Photographer of the Year is a perfect blend of ‘art’ and ‘emotional content’ – which is just what Museums & Galleries customers appreciate. We were honoured to be asked by Maxine at the Natural History Museum to consider working with them on it, and then very quick to confirm our interest once we saw the photographs.”
