Known for teaching his students to transform the energy of nature into art by using the elements of design - line, balance, color, and more - the artist Arthur Wesley Dow focused on synthesizing actual feelings rather than leaning on art theory like so many of his forebears. 

Perhaps, that is why the maker of this letterpress card includes this design in their 'Sympathy' collection. The moon may be rising or setting, and one thing that is clear is that reflection and lightness amidst a dark background prevail.

Deep and saturated purple, blue, and green tones provide a visual starting point for a quiet and personal meditation.

What do you think of in the darkness of night? To have this card is to look through a window and wonder.

Saturn Press is an eco-concious company based on Swan's Island off the Maine coast. A married couple works together to make this international business happen. (Jane Goodrich creates the designs, James vanPernis runs the company's 4 antique printing presses, and a sweet gal named Kathy who used to answer the phone recently retired.)

Using an old-fashioned letterpress technique, paper sourced from a sustainable family-run mill, and a love for what they do, Saturn Press creates striking cards that will make a lasting impression no matter who the recipient.

Some folks love the vivid colors and unique images so much they request cards without envelopes to frame and hang them as wall art.
