Floating Down the Stream of Life Letterpress Autograph Card
"Floating down the stream of life,
In your little bark canoe,
May you have a pleasant trip,
With just room enough for two."
In chocolate brown ink, under a framed-in layered original drawing of mine of a Beach Pea printed in leaf green and a pale blush pink. A wonderful sentiment of lifelong love as you send a couple off into their new life together.
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.
