About The Boards

We have two alphabets, one from the beautiful island of Barbados and the other from the equally beautiful Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada. Both contain over 300 letters, numbers and symbols, each of which is captioned to show what it is and where it was shot. Images are mounted on 1/8” PVC and measure 4.5” x 2.7” and simply slot into the board. No glue, no tape, no nothing. Each board is hand-made from pine and then pickled with a water-based emulsion.

About Us

Inside our shop Mike Toy developed his interest in photography while living and working in the Canadian Rockies in the early 1980's.

Specialising in architecture and interiors he has photographed over four hundred of the region's most prestigious hotels, resorts and private residences. He also shoots lifestyle, fashion, food and underwater and contributes regularly to a number of international publications. To date he has photographed nine books and maintains an extensive on-line library of Caribbean Stock Photography and a retail store in Barbados that offers fine-art prints and photographic gifts.
