Pabuku was brought into creation by the two lovely ladies Ulla and Ute. Both have backgrounds in art and graphic design and they create their fantastical images for their cards by collecting and collaging old illustrations from history books. Creating a rich, immaginative and diverse story in each image. After adding colour through photoshop the cards are then printed on a special printer allowing the stunning detail of the old drawings to be reproduced.
Self nicknamed 'The Quirky Paperie' their whimsical illustrations are full of wit, with a focus on inclusive love and breaking stereotypes, aligning with their motto that "normal is just an illusion". Pabuku's range of cards cater for all sorts of people and all kinds of relationships, each so rich with imagination that it leaves space for individual interpretation as well.
The story of the card is continued on the reverse side, where you will find another small illustration accompanied by an epigram enhancing the illustration on the front. Asking the shopper to interact with the card as they turn it over in their hands to link the surreal sentence and the beautiful images. There is so much to enjoy from a Pabuku card.
