Years back now when I was making The Manky Map with a lot of my dad’s Irish sayings I took out all the rude ones and stored them away. Some time later he went on a bit of a rant about some gombeen who was as thick as a double ditch and wouldn’t even give you the steam off his...well, you get the gist. It was a lengthy tirade of colourful and cutting insults and sewed the idea for a print so rude it should only be hung on bathroom walls of those living far away.
This A3 word art print by The Word Bird is called ‘A Face Only A Mother Would Love & Other Irish Insults’, and is sold rolled in a tube ideal for those living abroad:) Original Irish word art by Susan Brambell, The Word Bird.
Framing notes:- The A3 is 420mm x 297 cm. It will fit into any IKEA frame or similar that has an opening of 30x40cm. If you choose one without a mount so that the whole glass is 30 x 40 you will need to trim a little off the top and bottom but there is room on the print to do that without affecting the design. If you choose one that has a mount in it and the mount opening is 30 x 40 you won't need to trim.
There are a few IKEA frames to choose from but these are the links to the Ribba ones
IKEA Ribba 30 x 40 cm https://www.ikea.com/ie/en/p/ribba-frame-black-30378454/ if you trim the top and bottom.
IKEA Ribba 40 x 50cm frame with a mount opening of 29cm x 39 cm without trimming, you can just tape it behind the mount.
