This set of cards was inspired by my childhood snow days in Charlottesville, Va. We had a lot of birds visit our house in the woods but I had favorite red bird who would come sit on my windowsill. I loved waking up in the morning to find the world all glittery and white. The contrast of red birds against bright white snow was so much like a fairy tale. When the school bus could not make it down our road my brother, sister and I would gather up sleds and head out for a day of trial and error sledding... can we make it down that hill... over that log... can we get going so fast that we jump the creek? Then we would come home to a warm wood stove, cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate.
We printed each card twice on our 100 year old Chandler & Price letterpress. The first printing was to create the delicate blue branches. The second added the sweet little red birds.
