Old Images, New Vegetables
I found this amazing seed catalog in Michigan last week when I was out antiquing with my mom. Isn't it fabulous? I love the rich, saturated color- especially that beet! The inside is mostly black and white, but with beautiful hand drawn images of each seed that is offered. I have a small collection of old catalogs (mostly Sears and Montgomery Ward's from the 1920's) and I never get sick of looking through their fragile, thinner than tissue pages. I suppose they were not printed with the intention of being functional almost a century after the items inside were for sale.
I think the images from this little gem will be making their way into the next sampler, which I'll show a sneak peak of this Friday. Stay tuned....
