Object of Desire: Botanical Calendars and Cards from Moontree Letterpress


Object of Desire: Botanical Calendars and Cards from Moontree Letterpress

November 24, 2017

Recently admired: this year’s holiday collection of botanical prints from veteran designer and budding horticulturalist Rebecca Kutys of Moontree Letterpress.

During the past decade, Rebecca has received much attention for her simple, yet elegant, letterpress designs, made by hand in her small studio in rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania. More recently the designer has been working towards her certificate in horticulture from nearby Barnes Arboretum, an experience which has informed her latest collection of botanicals. True to her naturalist’s training, each Moontree Letterpress piece is eco-friendly and “tree-free,” printed on studio-made, 100 percent recycled, rag cotton paper.
