Did you ever marvel at the shapes made by snowflakes as a child? Perhaps you still do! Each storm seems to bring a different character of snow over the course of a long winter. Some Northern cultures have hundreds of individual words to describe the various kinds of snow they encounter.

Such vast repertoires are a reminder of our connection to the natural world, and of the nuanced understandings of weather and landscape that have helped humanity to survive in harsh conditions for generations. Here we are treated to a depiction of a handful of the infinite variety of forms that snow, ice, hail, and hoar frost offer to careful observers.

Saturn Press is an eco-concious company based on Swan's Island off the Maine coast. 3 folks work 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 answers the phone and takes care of shipping 3 days a week.)

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.
