10 Greeting Cards with Animal Motifs
Article Number 69572
10 envelopes made of 120 g recycled paper (75% wood pulp, 25% cotton) in a 9 x 14 cm format.
Colour imbued with pure vegetable dyes and depending on the motif, printed red on green, blue on light brown or black on white.
From Italy. This format is a godsend for all those who have wordlessly trembled in front of an empty expanse of paper. It is ideally compact in order to succinctly give utterance to the wish of friendly goodwill or greeting but is not so dauntingly large to compel the composition of an otherwise useless essay.
The Drawing. The Way to Knowlege.
Knowledge is based on the recognition of certain characteristics. It would seem that the more comprehensive and precise the identification, the more true and accurate the knowledge. With that in mind, it shouldn’t be surprising that the scientific drawing continues to possess a high significance: by its nature, it requires a concentrated examination of every detail. In contrast with the photographer, the draughtsman must concentrate on every individual element, overlooking nothing, in order to capture the object in its entirety and to be able to commit it to paper true to reality. Which is why drawings are still made today in the physical sciences, like botany, zoology, or archaeology, to make sure all characteristics of the object under investigation are assembled: It’s the drawing that leads to knowledge.
Which is also why the motifs of these copybooks and greeting cards, based on historic drawings from an extensive collection of graphics and prints from the 18th century, give the same attention and merit to fossils and living organisms, to species of lower and higher rank in the biological classification. They replicate with the highest precision and dedication to detail what upon closer observation is noted and thereby recognised.
