Autograph Cards grew out of my love for my Great Grandmother's own autograph book from the 1890s, which my dad now has and keeps safe. The entire book was filled with messages of love and friendship from her friends and family; beautiful poems and phrases from more than a century ago, scratched out in elegant penmanship.
I've hand lettered messages from her book for each of these cards, mimicking the scrawl of my great grandmother Edna Foster Campbell's loved ones, and paired each with a botanical drawing of my own.
• Each card measures 6.25" wide x 4.5" high when folded, and is blank inside
• Letterpress printed by hand in chocolate brown and leaf green inks
• Printed on thick, white 100% cotton stock
• Box of 6 cards and envelopes in a kraft paper box in a clear plastic sleeve
