Ice Crystal Chrismas Cards

2 Comments

Last weekend I completed six designs for Christmas cards. These will be printed on the cards I send to my family and friends this year.

Each design is based on an actual ice crystal (more commonly known as snowflakes) photographed by W. A. Bentley in the early 1900s. Bentley was the first person to photograph a single ice crystal, and went on to photograph more than 5000. You can see from my illustrations the complexity and intricacy of some of the snowflakes photographed by Bentley.

The cards are also available for sale in my etsy shop.
