The perfect gift for your favorite goth. This is the complete set of cards I designed based on grave markers at the Basilica di Santa Croce in Florence, Italy. These began as photographs I took of skulls inset into the floor of the church. I definitely have an affinity for all things morbid so Italian churches fascinate me. I turn the photographs into pure black and white images by manipulating the contrasts, etc. The images are then turned into polymer printing plates and combined with other imagery to form the designs. I letterpress print the cards on a platen press.

The cards are called Ghost Skull, Scientific Skull, Extasi in Morte, and Death Springs Eternal. Each is printed in two colors, and there is a different color paper for each card. The paper is 100 lb. card stock manufactured by the French Paper Co., a family-owned papermill.

Folded cards are blank for your personal message. Includes 4 envelopes in a coordinating color.

Each design is also sold individually:
