Celebrating the RSA’s tree-planting

for Rawthmells Coffeehouse, at the Royal Society of Arts

As a Royal Designer for Industry, the RSA invited Quentin to create a celebratory drawing for the newly-opened coffeehouse in the Society’s London headquarters in 2018. The drawing commemorates a campaign in the 18th century by the RSA to encourage landowners to plant trees, for which gold medals were handed out; on the final print, which is on permanent display in the cafe, the medals are picked out in gold foil.
