We discovered a trove of antique naturalist's identification images and are offering them on cards, journals and prints. The front of the card features a page from a nineteenth-century Naturalist's Moth Identification book. The Moths featured are two Hawkmoths, also known as Sphinx moths. These are the iconic Death's Head Moth, and the beautiful rose-colored Spurge Hawk-moth. The card features delicate color drawings of the Caterpillar, the Death's Head Moth, and the Spurge Hawk-moth. There are also graphite close-up drawings of the moth's "parts" like the legs, proboscis, and more!
These high-quality paper cards come pre-folded, packed in cello sleeves per 10 cards, and includes a white envelope for each card. Works well with regular ballpoint pens after a short drying time.
You'll receive a pack of blank inside 5 cards with envelopes. These cards are 4.25 x 5.5 inches. The back is blank except for our logo and URL.
These are perfect for your everyday letter-writing or as a gift for a friend who is either slightly goth or into flying insects.
