Letters To Edna Greeting Cards

8.50

Letters To Edna is a greeting card series by artist Rikkianne Van Kirk and Grey Moon Vintage. The poems and texts (with their original penmanship) inside the cards are from a found Autograph Book from 1905 that belonged to a woman named Edna from San Antonio, Texas. Autograph Books were a keepsake popular in the late 19th and very early 20th century among university students to collect poems, mementos, saying and signatures from friends. Known for her illustrations on antique paper, Van Kirk visually interprets each text using her sentimental and minimalistic perspective. Each 5.5”x4”card on linen card stock can be framed and displayed as art! Read more about the story of the Autograph Book that inspired the cards on our blog.

Canoe: In sailing down the stream of life, In your little bark canoe, May you have a pleasant trip, For just enough for two.

Laying Couple: Some love one, Some love two, But I love one, And that is you.

Embracing Couple: I met you as a stranger, I found you as a friend, I hope the love between us, Will never have an end.

Flower Lady: Remember me when this you see, If many miles apart shall be, If in grave shall be my bed, Remember me when I am dead.
