Botanical Alphabet U Greeting Card
U is for Uva Ursi.
Uva Ursi literally means grape of the bear, as the fruit is commonly eaten by...you guessed it - bears! Native Americans called the plant Kinnikinnick meaning smoking mixture because mixed with other bits and bobs was used to smoke in pipes. The plant was also used in traditional medicine.
The Botanical Alphabet is inspired by old scientific botanical illustrations and categories of olden day Explorers and Naturists. Paired with modern outlined sans serif letters and bold colour blocks, it has a much more contemporary feel while still keeping a hint of the much loved illustration genre of the past.
