These avian pop-up cards animate four distinctive birds from by John Jay Audubon (American, 1785–1851). Whether you use them to correspond with nature lovers or art aficionados, these clever, graphic cards will be a welcome surprise to your recipients.
An artist, an observer of nature, and (most famously) a birdwatcher, Audubon made 435 watercolor paintings for his pioneering 1839 publication. Four exquisite lithographs by John T. Bowen, after Audubon, provide the inspiration for the inventive notecards in our set. Featuring a creative shadowbox format for each, these cards offer a unique new take on celebrated illustrations that meticulously and beautifully depict birds in their natural habitats.
