Josef Herman Mini Memory Suitcase
Artist Josef Herman travelled from city to city throughout his life, from Warsaw to Glasgow to Ystradgynlais, a small village in Wales, producing beautiful paintings and drawings wherever he went.
Lots of his work focuses on memories, of places he went, people he met and stories he heard. Now you can make an artist’s suitcase of your own, to remember people, places and special memories!
