All of the Words in the World signed limited edition silkscreen print by Rob Ryan. Ryan created this piece for the British Heart Foundation's Mending Broken Hearts Art Appeal, and all publisher's profits will go to the BHF.

Like the other artists taking part in the Art Appeal, Ryan was given the theme 'mending broken hearts' from which to take inspiration. This intricate, whimsical and romantic composition is typical of his work, which always features text as the emotional key of the work. Ryan created an original paper cut of the image (which was sold at auction in aid of the BHF in April 2010), which he painstakingly made with a tiny scalpel. His unashamedly romantic interpretation of 'mending broken hearts' shows a couple opening their hearts to each other.
