Botanical Alphabet & Greeting Card
& (Ampersand) is for Amaryllis.
The amaryllis plant has a symbiotic relationship with carpenter bees, and is also visited by moths at night.. In Victorian floriography Amaryllis symbolises strength and determination due to the plant’s height and sturdy nature.
The Botanical Alphabet is inspired by old scientific botanical illustrations and categories of olden day Explorers and Naturists. Paired with modern outlined sans serif letters and bold colour blocks, it has a much more contemporary feel while still keeping a hint of the much loved illustration genre of the past.
