On the back of the card...

Every autumn just before the equinox, Thomasin Healing meets with Ford Buckminster Beaver to go through his kindling inventory. He makes a habit of leaving his premium stock aside for her, and rightfully so: this particular wood is to build a very particular fire. One that will withstand the wind and snow and cold of even the most severe winter. Using her little wings as bellows and adding kindling as necessary, she keeps the fire alight through the season, with everyone taking as they need to warm their home, heat their water, and roast their vegetables.

As the winter turns to spring and with safety matches being a rare commodity in the community, the fire is extinguished save, for next year, one candle's worth that Thomasin keeps on her window sill. As she tends to it, she is ever reminded of the eternal nature of things and the power of something so subtle and elusory.

The details...

Note Card, A6 (4.5” x 6.25”) with envelope in protective cello.

On the reverse of each card is a whimsical tale of the animal featured. Entirely collectible, the stories intertwine, creating a much-loved community of characters.

We print on a luxurious 318 gsm, 100% cotton paper. Soft and durable, this paper showcases crisp detail and vibrant colour.

We fell in love with our beautiful goldenrod shade, 90# envelope. According to the ‘World’s Favourite Colour’ study, people associate the feeling of joy with this colour. Also, this is the very shade that enrobes our trusty #2. As all of our images are hand drawn in pencil, we thought it appropriate to give a nod of appreciation.

We donate a portion of gross sales to animal welfare.
