London gunmaker John Rigby & Co. has made some of its most striking artworks available in notecard form, enabling enthusiasts to add a spine-tingling touch to even the most mundane messages.

Reproduced from original drawings by Rigby’s resident engraver and artist, Geoffrey Lignon, the set of eight stirring images features portraits of the African ‘Big Five’ plus Asia’s iconic tiger.

In addition to the high-quality cards, each set includes crisp ivory envelopes and is supplied in an elegant Rigby blue presentation box.

Rigby’s managing director, Marc Newton, said: “I’m always on the lookout for unusual or eye-catching ways to make thank yous, invitations and letters to old friends more personal. Geoffrey’s incredible images of African and Asian wildlife offer a perfect solution.”

Each card measures 21cm x 14¾cm and each set retails for £59.
