‘These cards celebrate species from the most showy to the most humble. Each card offers a page from Shawn’s now out of print book A Pop-Up Field Guide to North American Wildflowers. They measure 4.5 x 6 inches. All stock is commercial cover in varying weights from various manufacturers and come packaged with a translucent vellum envelope and id label. The label includes both the common and scientific name for the plant. These details are also hand-set in Italian on the inside of each card.
Shawn Sheehy concepted, engineered and designed this field guide. Sarah Vogel letterpress printed the text. Both contributors worked on assembly.
