Lizard Press

Notes from the Artist:
Beautiful illustrations from Albert Schramm’s "Der Bilderschmuck der Frühdrucke", reproductions of the German incunabula period [1450-1500AD] are accompanied by Tower lead type for the name of the herb and MrsEaves digital type for the most common herbal uses.

A small packet of seeds are also letterpressed with the Tower initial to complete the organic package for each card.

Letterpress printed by hand on Fox River Evergreen Moss 100PC recycled paper. The combination of vintage letterpress and the soft paper impresses the image for a wonderful tactile effect.
