This card is part of a series I've been working on in which I experiment with natural dyes on paper. In this case, the dye is ground Annatto Seed and the image is an original linoleum cut. The back features found vintage letterpress cuts. The names listed on the side are various names for the annatto seed.

This letterpress postcard was printed on Rising Stonehenge cardstock. First, I hand dyed the card, so each card will be slightly different. Then I used a combination of lead type, vintage cuts and a linoleum cut to print the card. The text refers to my dyeing process or information about the origin of the dye, presented in a fanciful manner. It was printed on a Chandler & Price clamshell press. This card is part of a signed and numbered edition of 44 cards. Card measures 4" x 6" and comes to you in a protective plastic bag.

I have done the best I can to edit the photograph for true color, but please note the dyes change over time. Also, natural dyes fade when exposed to sunlight.

This is the February 2009 card.

A note on shipping: you may notice that the international rates are very high. I'm sorry, this reflects current USPS pricing, which skyrocketed for international parcels this year. I am working on changing my shipping envelopes to hopefully qualify at first class letter rate. Unfortunately, that decision rests with the individual postal employees. If I manage to send your parcel for less money, I will refund the extra through paypal. I charge the cost of shipping + 50 cents for the envelope, which is my actual cost.
