This Herring Moon fabric is by printmaker Jonathan Gibbs, and what’s it all about? He says, ‘Phases of the moon with six swimming fishes illustrate tidal shifts, and I have explored the history of herring fishing down the east coast. With these elements I have pictured waves, ships on the sea, the church and lighthouse, all set as if within a postcard. This multiple image connects and repeats across the length, its shapes and symbols illuminating man’s place against nature.’ We say, ‘A great graphic update on breezy, seaside style.’
