A word about the project from Lead Graffiti, a letterpress print and bookmaking studio in Newark, DE:

“Mary Fran produces very original botanical images combining anatomical images of plants and leaves with historical information. Illustrative details, typewritten notes, and calligraphy combine to produce a rich and visually powerful image. She came to us to produce a series of clamshell boxes to hold portfolios of 16" x 11" prints of her work.”

Price upon request. Please contact MF Cardamone for further information about purchasing this folio.
