Overview

(6 Cards Individually Bagged W/ Envelopes & Header)

“Every blade of grass, every insect, ant, and golden bee, all so amazingly know their path;
though they have not intelligence, they bear witness to the mystery of God.”

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Many years ago we gave the great English calligrapher and illustrator Marie Angel a selection of quotations.  They were all of spiritual import.  She studied them and finally selected this small group, saying, “I see these.  I can find visuals for these, and I can make the words fit within them.”  We are proud to present her resultant exquisite paintings as a series of inspirational greeting cards.  The images reflect Angel’s unique ability to capture the power and beauty of the natural world in a reflective, tranquil tone.  The accompanying quotations – rendered in Angel’s lovely calligraphy as an integral part of the each image – are from a diverse group of authors familiar and less so including Walt Whitman, John Dryden, Christina Rossetti, and Dostoyevsky.
