Beautiful new art print based on a page from 'Familiar Wild Flowers' (Edward Hulme) published in 1899. It would look really pretty on any wall in the house.
This listing is for a digitally enhanced new print on acid-free paper, using Ultrachrome K3 inks. It is not the actual page from the book.
To create this print, I scanned the image and isolated the flower section. As a shadow of the original text was showing through the image, I retyped the text in the same place as the original text, and created another background.
Print Size: 5 x 6 ins or 13 x 15 cm approx.
The image is printed on a sheet of A4 with cut marks so it can be trimmed to the above size. However, there is room for a wide margin, if desired.
The words read as follows:
By no means conspicuous as regards its flower, the present plant will probably be yet well known to most of our readers -to all who, with any appreciation of the beauties of nature, have wandered along our hedgerows in the long days of summer - for the foliage of the black bryony is one of the most graceful and most ordinary draperies that fringe and festoon the plants of the hedge or copse. The leaves are ordinarily very considerably larger than those the exigencies of our space would allow us to represent; a breadth of six inches or so would probably be a fair average for an ordinarily developed leaf, and those we have selected have therefore been taken from near the end of the spray. The long trailing stems are thickly covered with the great heart-shaped leaves, and one of its most beautiful features, noticeable on pulling down some six fee of it from its attachment, is the delicate gradation of form and size from the great leaves of the lower portion to the lighter forms near the extremity of the stem.
All prints whether modern, antique or vintage, should not be exposed to direct sunlight.
The print will be packed securely in a card-backed envelope and posted by airmail if overseas.
