flowers (cards)

march 09

55mm x 76mm
printed wrapper, silk flowers

Ten of the flowers that I wrote about in Colva Books 17, Flowers, appeared as embroidered silk flowers that were given away with Wix's Kensitas cigarettes in 1934-35. As these silks are still readily available I printed up a few of their folders with my own text replacing the botanical history and cultural notes that appeared in the originals and slipped the silks inside.
