This beauty has been MANY years in the making, Finally found the right people to help us bring it to fruition and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.
The letterpress die was hand carved from a photo I took here in the Sonoran desert.
A simple, yet elegant. An homage to The Saguaro in all its majestic glory.
Back reads :
SAGUARO (Carnegiea Gigantea)

It is the largest cactus in the United States and is endemic to the Sonoran Desert. Found at elevations of 25 - 3800 ft in southern Arizona and western Sonora, Mexico. They produce a red fruit which was known to be
a staple food for the indigenous peoples of the Sonoran Desert. Nocturnal
blossoms appear from April to June.
