Cute ice cream van watercolours!

A few days ago, Register member James Hewett sent in a greetings card new to me, by well-known designer and illustrator Emma Ball. It is a lovely addition to any collection of J-type ephemera!

Emma has a website at where I found another card with a similar drawing on it and also a 2012 Calendar. Since the calendar was for sale at a reduced price I ordered one, and the other card. The items turned up a couple of days later, beautifully packaged in a carton that made it impossible for the postman to bend; neatly wrapped in tissue paper were the items themselves. I was so impressed.

Let’s hope Emma adds more J-type designs into her range.

J/B for sale in Australia

Australian member John Beaton sends details of this Morris J/B van for sale at the moment on the Just Cars website. A second van advertised a week or so ago on the same site apparently failed to sell. This van is known to the Register and appears in the Morris J/B gallery.
