We have a deep affection for vintage seed catalogs! These historical gems are a treasure trove of horticultural and agricultural history, offering intricate drawings and lithographs (often by unknown illustrators) alongside detailed descriptions of plants from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Originally published by seed and plant companies, these catalogs served as essential marketing tools, often sent out to customers via mail. Beyond their historical significance, we can't help but be captivated by the beautiful illustrations they feature, inspiring our own designs for cards, postcards, and art prints. We have a collection of these catalogs in our archives and often use them as inspiration for our own designs!
