Flashes of liquid metal in the verdant jungle canopy draw you toward an enchanted world, where delicate nymph-like hummingbirds flutter from flower to flower, and shimmering beetle crawl upon the vines like living ornaments. Fantastical as they may seem, these are all real creatures - some of the brightest treasures of our rainforests. For years we have dreamed of bringing you multi-dimensional shimmering specimens, and the time is finally here!
The Wunderkammer “Ornament” collection embraces the marriage of cutting-edge printing technology with old-world fine-paper finishing techniques. These creatures are a celebration of natural iridescence, perfectly capturing the multi-dimensional shine of a hummingbird’s gem like feathers, or a beetle’s rainbow carapace.
These specimens are printed double-sided on heavy-weight shimmer paper
One sideis embellished with shifting rose-gold and green-apple foil
