A little letter-pressed botanical print on botanically dyed handmade paper. This print is part of an ongoing series based on the botanical specimens collected from the hills and hedgerows around my home. These botanical studies are born out of my own desire to learn the names and properties of my local plants and I hope to encourage you to get to know your plant neighbors too! A wildflower steeped in myth and legend with its Latin genus named in honor of the Greek God Achilles. In folklore, Yarrow is associated with healing and love.
Paper composition: reclaimed rag and plant fibres | Dyestuff: Coreopsis | Dimensions: 3 x 4 1/4 inches | Unframed

More from this Co
Botanically dyed handmade paper and letterpress printed goods that are rooted in and inspired by nature.
All my prints are borne out of my fascination with botany and ecology. My creative process begins out in the field with my wildflower key and hand lens in pocket.
My papers are made from a composition of reclaimed rag and plant fibres either left in their natural tones or imbued with natures living hues through the alchemy of botanical dyes. Each sheet is pulled from the vat by hand using time honoured and traditional paper-making techniques.
My botanical illustrations are printed on my big beautiful antique printing press. Each sheet of handmade paper is fed one at a time into the press. The pressure of the printing plate combined with the pillowy paper creates a lovely fossil-like impression.
I have worked hard to create a circular paper-making process that uses bi-product and reclaimed fibres. Nothing is wasted and everything is repurposed. I strive to save and use every last drop of botanical dye - reusing dye-baths where possible or turning leftover colour into pigments.
