This is a project that any design student would love to do; make a card set celebrating your favorite typeface and pair it with a subject that would highlight it. I decided to work with Sabon. It was one of the first that I had been introduced to as a design student and I was drawn to it’s strong, classic lines. It combined perfectly with botanical illustration, an art form I had just fallen in love with creating. Illustrating a series of California wildflowers was the perfect way to make it personal to me.

The paper

The cards were printed on cotton watercolor paper that I soaked in tea to create an aged effect.
This set of cards combines classic Sabon with classic artwork. Both of them elegant, both of them timeless.
