USDA Pomological Collection Postcards
The Painting: This is based on a watercolor from the USDA Pomological Watercolor Collection. These were used to document fruit and nut varieties in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Lithographs of these watercolor paintings were created to illustrate USDA bulletins, yearbooks, and other publications distributed to growers and gardeners across America. Painted imperfections depicted by the artist, such as scab and rot, have been maintained from the original. The image used here has been cropped as well as edited to remove signs of age such as specks, mold, and paper stains.
The Card: These are high-quality matte 4” by 6” cards that can be used as a post card or framed as part of a wall arrangement. The cards have the following characteristics: 4/4 full bleed; 300 GSM; paper thickness is 0.13″; and laminated feel. Note: There can be up to 1/16" variance in the cropped edges.
