Single greeting card with an adaptation of a page describing the meaning of the word anniversary from Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary of 1755. Compiled by Johnson alone over a period of ten years, the book is a towering achievement of scholarship and one of the most important books ever published. Printed on sustainably sourced, acid free, carbon neutral paper. Individually wrapped in a cellophane sleeve, with a 120gsm recycled envelope.

The Pattern Book curates vintage graphics from art, literature and science to create unique greeting cards. There’s beauty to be found everywhere. Whether in a long-forgotten graphic work, an old scientific illustration, an obscure, even baffling, technical drawing, the Pattern Book cards focus on art, science and the history of ideas, seeking out thoughtful and elegant designs in unusual places. These cards are printed in England on sustainably sourced paper.
