Other Ways to Walk
Other Ways to Walk is a project created by artist Rachel Howfield Massey, who loves walking and loves finding ways to get a bit closer to nature.
These cards are an expression of her experiences for anyone to share whether they want to potter in the park for 10 minutes, or make a day of it and get some miles in. Whether you are walking for escape, solitude, fitness, slowness, happiness or fresh air, Other Ways to Walk adds a twist of surprise to your journey.
There are two packs to choose from: Other Ways to Walk in Woodland, and Other Ways to Walk in Formal Parks.
The cards offer invitations such as, 'take your shoes and socks off and feel the grass tickle your feet', 'collect a leaf every time you experience a beautiful moment’, and ‘lie on your belly and look through the trees from the height of a fox’. They are designed to inspire you to relax, play and dream – to connect with the natural environment and with yourself.
On one side the cards have hand illustrated drawings by Rachel and contemporary graphics by Eleven Design. On the other side the text has an ‘old school typewriter’ vibe, typeset in a visual poetry style.
Each pack contains 15 individual cards. The cards are 98mm x 148mm, printed on medium weight uncoated card with rounded corners. Cards are presented in a protective plastic slip case which is screen printed with the title of the pack.
