Escape and Evade Blank Card handmade by Sarah Relph
With a piece of an original silk Escape and Evade Map on the front, this makes a unique and beautiful card, for a special occasion or just to let someone know you are thinking of them.
Please Note: As all pieces are made from original maps, all pieces are unique, therefore the map design will differ from the image.
All the work is made from genuine issue silk maps from WW2 to the 1950s Cold War period, preserving the integrity and history of the maps but making them relevant to today so that their story will survive.
During WW2 the military had maps printed onto silk as it doesn’t degrade in water and can be folded up very small to be concealed inside the lining of a uniform or the hollowed out heel of a flying boot. The maps were issued to the military throughout WW2 and beyond; helping our troops find their way home.
