Oh the ginkgo
Leaves dipping and darting
Making visible
the invisible breeze
on my shoulders

I've always loved leaves and the ginkgo seems to be in a class of it's own... and for good reason. Ginkgo Biloba is the only living plant in it's genus and is considered to be a living fossile. This is because G. Biloba is recognizably similar to fossils dating back 270 million years. Imagine these lovely fan shaped leaves fluttering in wake of a dinosaur!

This set of beautiful letterpress cards features my original gingko illustration. We converted the illustration into raised printing plate. Next we hand mixed a bright, vegetative green ink then printed each card one-by-one on our 100+ year old printing press. We chose ultra luxurious 110lb 100% tree free cotton paper that takes a beautiful deep impression. Although luxurious, this cotton paper is also eco friendly. The cotton is harvested scraps from created by, but unusable for, the garment industry. The fibers that are too short to be woven into fabric and are instead used to make this elegant, thick, fabric-like paper.

The result is the perfect place to share you thanks, warm wishes, or general correspondence. You can write on the front, back or both. Having these options eliminates the feeling of having to 'fill the page'. Write as little or much as you like, either looks lovely on a flat correspondence card.

This set also makes a beautiful gift!
