An 1899 vintage seed catalog is the inspiration for this collection. With no photographs, the detailed drawings of vegetables and flowers had to sell the seeds!

One thing that struck me about the vegetables was how many different kinds were on offer while the flower section was similar to current catalogs: the newest and most tantalizing cultivars up front with the old favorites like sunflowers and pansies filling out the rest. It was telling how much more important food crops were at the time because the catalog was mostly devoted to food and animal feed crops with the flower seeds having much less space. I love seeing these vintage publications and how everyday life was both different and yet similar.
