We dreamt this print up during the long winter months when all we really craved was a fresh basil, tomato and mozzarella sandwich. If we'd had a terrarium like this, we would have been one step closer to heaven!

In reality, we're not sure that we'd be able to keep these herbs alive through the cold winter months, but it's a dreamy thought that we decided to illustrate and print instead. Basil, rosemary and thyme herbs grow in a terrarium studded with layers of rocks and soil and a few decorative elements, like a flowered mug and a silver spoon. A wood grain background lends a stable background to the colorful scene. A perfect print to hang in the kitchen, dining room, or anywhere you want a bit of garden freshness!

We combined our own hand-drawn illustrations of herbs, terrariums and decorations into a lovely tableau before deciding on print methods and colors. Then, 2 letterpress hand-printed runs were done, first in a violet-purple and then silver inks. Finally, each print is hand tinted with a mix and blend of over six different watercolor inks, mixed and blended to lend the basil, rosemary and thyme leaves additional color and interest.*

This layered printing method allows for the best of both worlds: the luxurious texture of letterpress, and the hand-tinted loveliness of watercolor. A great gift for foodies, gardeners and print lovers alike!

Prints measure 8.5" x 11" and are printed on soft Crane's Lettra cotton cardstock. Each print is packaged in an archival quality cello sleeve, and is shipped in a thick cardboard mailer with chipboard backing for additional protection, via USPS mail.

These are limited edition prints that are signed and numbered... once they're gone, they're gone!

*Please note that each print is unique, given the nature of hand-printing and tinting.
