Spider in Web Hand Painted Grand Statement Card
First engraved in rich gold and then uniquely hand-painted, the tagmatas, cephalothoraxes, ganglias and spinnerets of this anthropod never looked so good! Comfortably resting in its silky orb web. Every spider is hand painted so no two will ever be the same. Bernard created this image from a photograph he took of the spider in his own backyard. Engraved in two colors on heavy 6 ply 100% cotton cream stock, with mailing envelope. 10.5 x 7.5 inches. One card and one envelope.
The Bernard Maisner Grand Statement cards are unique in the world of fine stationery. At 10.5 x 7.5 inches, they are giants in scale to what is typically produced in the engraving trade - where small is the order of the day. Difficult and demanding to produce, many individual press runs may be required for every extra heavy thickness 100% cotton fiber card (with the challenge of tight registration as well), to cover such a large area. Bernard manufactures his own 100% cotton envelopes to go along with these proprietary sized cards. Truly unique in all the world.
