Get started with Thursday’s deal: a box set of herb-themed Notecards marked down 33 percent! Adapted from the work of botanical artist Anne Ophelia Dowden (1907–2007), images on these 20 museum-quality note cards are themed fragrant, cooking, dyers and medicinal. The herbs pictured are listed on the back of the card. Cards are printed on eco-friendly paper with soy-based inks.
The New York Times says:
Ms. Dowden was recognized for the anatomical accuracy and beauty of her paintings. She worked mainly in watercolor, producing elegantly detailed images of flowers, insects, herbs and birds. She used only living specimens for models and kept extensive collections of preserved flowers and insects as reference material.
