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.

This print is very clean and classic. We've hung it in our entryway. It's a subtle homage to your state of choice. In addition, the barnwood frame is gorgeous. It comes with the framing wire already assembled and attached. It really is a high quality piece worth every penny.

Since the barnwood frame was more gray than my trim, I had planned on spray painting the frames but they were sealed pretty good on the back so I couldn't remove the frames. I imagine that the original artwork had terrific texture, you should know that these are just paper copies though. Other reviews are correct that the barnwood frames are perhaps not even really wood but a laminated wood look.

Warmed Grandparents' Hearts

By 

from Maine

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Birds and Blooms Art - Individual States:

I gave this product as a present to my grandparents. They currently split their time from their home state in the summer months, and the rest of the year in Florida. They both love their home state immensely, but they are unable to live there all of the time.

For Christmas, I wanted to give them something that reminded them of home. This Birds and Blooms Art, representing their home state was perfect. My grandmother is quoted as saying "I wish I could have two - one for each state we live in."

Nice addition to my PA collection

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about UncommonGoods Birds and Blooms Art - Individual States:

I collect Pennsylvania items and I thought this would make a good addition to my collection, especially because I'm a bird and flower lover. It arrived ready to hang up on the wall. My only quibble is that upon closer inspection, there are little pieces of dust/fibers(?) under the glass but I can't get to them because the back of the picture is sealed. But it's not too visible unless you look closely.

Purchased the Minnesota print for my wife. I was a little leary about using this as a Valentine's Day gift but she loved it! We have it dsiplayed right above her desk in the home office. Really good reminder of where she came from. Perfect!

Just what we wanted, highly recommend these prints

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Birds and Blooms Art - Individual States:

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.

Beautiful Print

By 

from North Carolina

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Birds and Blooms Art - Individual States:

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!
