Maybe because we finally gave in and let E dive into The Order of the Phoenix. Or maybe because The Deathly Hallows, Part 2 arrived in the mail on Saturday and we watched it late into the night (not E – she has to read them first). But we’ve had Harry Potter on the brain a bit. Which reminded me of an email I got from a friend awhile back that I hadn’t spent much time looking at yet. This particular friend loves polar bears and somewhere once upon a time I saw the most beautiful print of polar bears… An Aurora of Polar Bears to be exact.
These alphabet / animal based prints come from Woop Studios, and they are the graphic designers for Harry Potter. (There’s the connection you were waiting for.) They are even more gorgeous in person – this friend ordered one. I’m not kidding. You could base a whole room around these things, the colors are so gorgeous and besides, they are really just fun to say. I think my favorite might be A Murmuration of Starlings.
And you know I want that “F” for F – A Charm of Finches. That’s definitely on the list.
They have a book out now – A Zeal of Zebras , and these lovely wintery themed cards for those that get a bit tired of the holiday themed cards. Actually, come to think of it, once you get past the holiday cards most boxed cards sets tend to have spring or summer themes (flowers / landscapes / sunlight). I’d much rather receive “A Drift of Snow” in the mail than shovel it off my car.
And if you want a whole set of letters but can’t spring for 26 prints (who can?), this set is coming out soon. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a well illustrated alphabet.
Thanks for the heads up RK. See, like text messages, I will get to them eventually!
