The Miss Shuttlecock letterpress card has been made using an 18th century illustration found tucked away in the shelves of the Bute Archive. The satirical etching pokes fun at the extravagant fashions of the time as the lady wears a gigantic wig adorned with feathers. The perfect card for your friend with a bit of an eccentric style!

Each card from the Keyhole Collection has a bit of hidden history and a link on the back unlocks more detailed information about the image, where it is held and a chance to view the original online.

The Passenger Press


The Passenger Press is a letterpress print and design studio based in Glasgow, Scotland.

Every card & design tells a story and breathes new life into images found tucked away in books and archives.

The Passenger Press studio is housed in an old Victorian shopfront so we have our vintage presses and workspace at the back and sell all our products in the shop area at the front.

We love traditional methods of production and enjoy the hands on methods used in slow making. We are inspired by traditional skills and practices.

Each design is printed in small batches using ecologically sound paper milled in the UK.
