This set of four colorful, botanical illustration 4″x6″ postcards features native plants found on the Mormon Mesa in the Mojave Desert of Nevada.
Each postcard in this set was carefully crafted from field photographs and plant voucher samples from collections across the US. Included on each card is a little bit about each plant, including how they have been used as food or medicinally (from information researched via the Native American Ethnobotany Database). These cards showcase the natural beauty and botanical diversity of this unique region and at a standard postcard size, are a perfect fit for any mailbox or a thoughtful addition to any bulletin board, scrapbook, or wall display. The matte finish gives them an elegant touch and the archival inks make them suitable for framing as miniature artworks or sharing with fellow nature enthusiasts who will appreciate their beauty.
These Mormon Mesa postcards make a great companion gift to the Mormon Mesa Botanical Poster for anyone who loves the desert and its amazing biodiversity. Now you can celebrate the amazing tenacity and resilience of the plants in the Mojave Desert.
