Fruit/Vegetable

The illustrations on these chic notecards are all taken from award-winning designer Caz Hildebrand's Herbarium, a 21st-century reboot of the traditional herbal compendium. The visual genius behind the international bestseller The Geometry of Pasta, she has created abstract forms and vibrant colors to illustrate 100 essential herbs and to reveal their hidden properties. A selection is reproduced in this stylish box set of notecards.


Product Information

There was a time when herbs were supremely important in day-to-day life, were held in great respect and, in some cases, even thought to possess spirits. Hildebrand aims to reclaim these traditions by profiling 100 herbs. Each entry offers not only basic information, including its use in folklore and literature, but also sidebar snippets with specific guidance that includes how to grow; how to eat with it; how to try the herb, and ways the herb can be used to heal. The point of [this] book is that the earth is filled with these horticultural gifts, which are plentiful, useful, beneficial, beautiful, and, most importantly, right there in front of you."
