  • the maker

Anna Branning & Mara Murphy

Two friends, two antique printing presses, a bunch of ink and a whole lot of paper. This simple combination led Mara Murphy and Anna Branning, friends and co-workers for many years, to establish Dutch Door Press, a design & letterpress studio. They set up shop in 2006 in a beautiful Victorian house in San Francisco and named their press after the entryway to their studio—none other than a Dutch Door.

With an affinity for rich color, vintage patterns, natural forms and symmetry, they create unique and boldly colored designs for greeting cards, posters, and invitations. All of their designs are printed by hand on their antique Chandler & Price platen press or an equally lovely Vandercook simple precision 15 proofing press. collection

        The Virginia Birds and Blooms print is exactly as described. It is clear the artist took great care with the print. The framing job is beautiful. When we retire, it will be a lovely reminder of our favorite things about our three decades in Virginia -- the beautiful blooming dogwoods and the bright red cardinal.

              I love these prints. I have purchased the North Carolina and the Vermont prints, and they are both beautiful. They coordinate well enough to look good side by side, but stand alone beautifully as well. They are bright and happy and make their little nook look complete!

                Comments about BIRDS AND BLOOMS ART - INDIVIDUAL STATES:

                Both my friend and her partner got married and as bird watchers, I wanted to get them something that wasn't cheesy (like a birdhouse), but also wanted to get them something that represented a hobby they enjoyed together. Not only did this fit the bill (pun intended), but I was also able to select their state, making this all the more unique. My husband and I were also happy with the quality based on cost; great value and beautiful, unique gift.

                  Print has more of a stamped or "transferrred" look than i expected. Not a high quality print as indicated by the price. My mom likes it because of the Texas theme and bluebonnets, so we will keep and display. I bought as a Christmas gift for her.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Arrived with wrong frame -- black instead of barnwood.

                          I got this gift for my dad. He was really pleased with it. Personally, I am a little disappointed for the frame that is a little too fake-looking for my taste. I thought it was going to be a real wood frame. Maybe I missed part of the description. Overall, I am glad to have purchased this, despite my reservations about the frame. Considering the cost of getting artwork framed at a store, it's still a really good deal.

                            This is a nice print if you have a small nook or area that could use some beauty. We got the NC one, which is very pretty. My only complaint is that I wish it were slightly bigger. The colors are great and the frame complements the art. I'm very happy with this print and would like to have another to go with it.
