About

The Blue Twig Backstory

My hunt for antique prints began several years ago when my husband and I bought a charming (falling down) house. There were bare walls everywhere and a small budget to decorate them. I hit the flea market circuit, picked through dusty shelves at used book stores and discovered antique paper shows. Eventually, our walls were covered, but the hunt continued. I became obsessed with unusual old paper: engravings featuring simple architectural detail, antique astronomy charts, mid century fashion sketches, woodblock textile samples, and art deco wallpaper (we are just scratching the surface here...). As beautiful as the growing stash of prints was, it became clear we would never have room for them all. Each piece of curious antique paper needed a home. The Blue Twig was born.
