About the Founder or Team
Pickwick’s Papers is run by Mairead McNameeKing, a queer woman who recently moved from Chicago to Philadelphia. She enjoys making cards and art from vintage and new materials. Many of her pieces upcycle pages from books and watercolor. This shop is 100% named for her hound Pickwick who takes his name from Dickens (and occasionally steals scraps of paper).
Each piece is handmade by Mairead, often with a combination of collage, illustration, and watercolor.
