Description

Inspired by a holiday display window designed by Fred Rogers for Hallmark in the early 1970s, which featured an unadorned, child-sized, Norfolk Island pine, planted in a clear lucite cube, with a plaque that said “I like you just the way you are.” (Read more here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/religion/2019/11/22/mister-rogers-wasnt-just-nice-he-wanted-take-down-consumerism/) I liked the tree I designed (using the corner pieces from Elizabeth Friedlander’s beautiful Fir and Frost borders designed for Monotype) for the other cards in this series so much that I wanted a design that would feature the unadorned tree. This story was perfect.

Hand printed in Madison, WI with green and metallic gold ink on cream colored heavy Flurry cotton card stock, using hand-composed metal type and type ornaments. A2 sized card, includes matching envelope.
