We would like to introduce you to the rabbit, a charming little fella from the Leporidae family, he is full of energy and optimism. In 2011 he will be motivating us all to try something new, from nosing around neighboring warrens to meet new friends to dumping the daily grind of the grass eating job to follow your dream; be it selling Duracell batteries or ferrying drinks in for Mr Heffner.
Pass on good wishes for 2011 with these beautiful handprinted cards by Wuon Gean.

Buy Moomins 1-5 for the price of 4- that's 20% off (oh yes, we did the math)...
We all know and love Tove Jansson's classic, Moomins and we have been stocking the books published by Drawn & Quarterly at Material for some time now. This month, we are offering you the chance to purchase Books One to Five: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip for the price of four.
The books feature the strips drawn by Tove Jansson and written by her brother Lars for the London Evening News, before Lars took over both the art and the writing.
Lose yourself in these charming tales of Moomin Valley with stories such as "Moomin Under Sail," where the Moomins find themselves without a new adventure until Too-Ticky's compass gives them the idea to build a boat and head to sea and the story of the fickle and eternally lovestruck Mymble and Snorkmaiden who find themselves in competition over a thrilling new man.
"A lost treasure now rediscovered--one of the sweetest, strangest comics strips ever drawn or written. A surrealist masterpiece. Honest." --Neil Gaiman
The books retail at £12.99 each. To buy the set for our special price, visit our online store
