Pencils of Nature by Tom Butler, an exhibition at the Fox Talbot Museum
American artist Tom Butler has created a new body of work in response to Talbot’s pioneering work in the field of photography, using Victorian cabinet cards.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
After a visit to Lacock, Tom was inspired to begin working on this new work, seen here for the first time as Pencils of Nature. The cabinet card was a staple of Victorian photography. Still widely available, Butler has collected the cards over the years from antique stores and American “ﬂea markets.” He has transformed them by cutting them into strips, laminating with glue and then sanding and shaping them, before ﬁnally burnishing them with candle wax.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
Children's prices apply for those who are 17 years old or under. Under 5s go free.
As a member, you'll enjoy free access to hundreds of unforgettable places. You'll also help protect them for future generations.
