in case you haven’t already noticed, I’m uber inspired by specimen, botanical and medical art. due to the amazing response to the 2010 specimen calendar, I’ve been working on some new scientific items for the shop. the beetle books and other specimen journals have a dark brown woodgrain binding and are filled with fifty sheets of natural kraft paper. they will be available in the shop next week along with a very small collection of holiday goods.
I’m still working out the details for the eye chart print. it says, appropriately “Imagination is more important than knowledge” – an incredible quote by Albert Einstein. I’d love to letterpress it, but I haven’t decided on that yet. I’ve had this digitally printed copy hanging on my wall for a week or two now, and everytime I see it, I imagine how cool it would be printed on a 220lb cotton paper with a nice, deep impression… swoon, details next week.
if you were planning on purchasing the specimen calendar, I’ve only got 6 left. thank you so so much for your purchases so far!
