Description


A boxed notecard set featuring beautiful prints of medicinal plants


Healing Plants features sixteen hand-colored plates from Elizabeth Blackwell’s A Curious Herbal (1737–39). Blackwell, a talented artist with a passion for the natural world, published her herbal as a means of financial support after her husband landed in debtor’s prison, and it quickly became a valuable reference for doctors and apothecaries. These notecards—featuring plants like aloe, chamomile, and St. John’s Wort—are the perfect stationery for herbalists and all lovers of botanical illustration.
