This is a colleciton of sentimental ephemera the character Eliza Einsford-Hill (nee Doolittle) might have kept 5 years after the play Pigmalion and the film My Fair Lady were set. This collection from 1917 is comprised of items from 5 years ago such as some courting love letters sent by her now husband, Freddy Einsford-Hill, a newpaper cutting advertising speech lessons by Professor Henry Higgins and an invite to the Embassy Ball. The collecitons also contains a calling card and receipt from her newly established flower shop. All these are kept safely tied up in a posh chocolate box saved from Professor Higgins’ house several years ago, when she first got a taste of an upper class life.
These items were all created by me using a range of graphic processes including stamping, coalligraphy and gold foiling.
