The vivid colors orange and green have been applied brilliantly in this elegant yet understated letterpress card. There's a playfulness present as full, broad leaves curl into a shelter for a golden owl.

Acorns grow in abundance - symbolic of food and future trees. What does this owl have to say? Who knows...

The image is credited to CFA or Charles Francis Voysey (1857-1941) who was a celebrated architect working at the cusp of the Modern Movement. The spatiality and "radical simplicity" that distinguished his career have been overgrown with organic nature in this sepcimen.

A wise owl perched atop branches seems like a nod to something we have yet to learn.

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.
