The British Romantic poets believed in celebrating nature, and the individual. They had a particular disdain for modern technology. So I'd like to think letterpress printing their poems in today's world would have pleased them so. Featuring the key second generation of Romantic poets, these simple and sweet cards were inspired by my love of classic British literature as well as my nostalgia for those tiny Peanuts Valentine cards passed around when I was in elementary school. I always imagined Snoopy typing them out on his vintage typewriter.

These cards are carefully hand cranked, one at a time, on my vintage Vandercook proof press. I print on specialty milled #118 luxurious, pure 100% cotton stock. This stock is made from cotton linters which are left over from the textile industry. It is archival, acid free, recyclable, biodegradable, and elemental chlorine free.
