Saving the bees has become a pressing issue in the last ten years in the United States and around the globe. This set of ten cards reveals information concerning the dwindling population of honeybees and advocating for their survival and support from the human population. Each card on the front is a pastiche of designer Charles Spencer Anderson in the vernacular of his French Paper Company iconography. The collaging of type and icon printed creates an overlay of a bee when placed all together captures the overprinting style of Charles Spencer Anderson. The cards are cut to honeycomb shapes furthering the concept of advocacy for honeybees. Multiple typefaces were used on the front of the cards and the reverse side utilizes Regina Black Hiltie and Edmond sans. A cover stock was used to create thick cards, Mohawk 80lb. Cover in Loop Antique Vellum. The packaging is printed on a brown paper bag to give the customer a sense of authenticity and a natural organic feel and look.
