  • ON THE BACK OF THE CARD:

    Muldoon Parker is always on the move. His stride isn't a million klicks a second, but this pensive pace is beneficial when mapping Algonquin Park. Each morning, he heads out early as it's a two day hike with several portages to the interior. Equipped with his trusty measuring wheel, he enjoys the commune with nature as he travels.

     

    Not everyone is as fortunate as a turtle, with his house on his back. Muldoon's unique feature provides a home, as well as inspiration in his work as Community Urban Planner. He spends his day focusing on location analysis and developing ecological, biomimetic building practices. The process is fruitful: Murray Maynooth's oh-so-sturdy geodesic dome-home was modelled on Muldoon's own infallible shell.

    We print on Canson® Infinity Arches® Aquarelle Rag luxuriously thick 310 gsm, 100% cotton paper. This archival, matte paper with a felt-marked finish and even natural grain showcases crisp detail and vibrant colour.   It is mould-made by master papermakers using one of the world’s few remaining cylinder mould machines.  The company has been making very high quality art papers such as this since 1492.

     

    Our 90# envelopes come from G.F Smith’s FSC-certified, rich-hued Colorplan range.  We fell in love with a beautiful goldenrod shade. According to the ‘World’s Favourite Colour’ study, people associate the feeling of joy with this colour. Also, this is the very shade that enrobes our trusty #2.  As all of our images are hand drawn in pencil, we thought it appropriate to give a nod of appreciation.
