Botanical Posters

I follow Kassandra's Miniatures Blog for some time now. It's one of the blogs I really like, also because it was full of witches and gothic minis. Lately there is more about absinthe's mniatures, still very interesting.:) I like Vanessa's idea about miniature absinthe's fountain you can see in her Etsy shop. Althought I have never tried this alcohol I bought a little something connected to this drink. There are three botanical posters of the plants often called by the fans of absinthe "the holy trinity".

These are: grande wormwood, green anise and florence fennel - doesn't sound tasty, does it?;) The posters have been printed on real parchment paper. As much as I love miniature's printies I couldn't just leave them there.;) And now they are here.:)

Thank you so much Vanessa!
Do go and see Vanessa's blog and Etsy shop!:)

Mam chyba lekkiego fioła na punkcie miniaturowych "obrazków". Nic więc dziwnego, że gdy zobaczyłam te malowane roslinki, nie pozwoliłam im za długo leżeć w sklepie Vanessy. Jej blog to Kassandra's Miniatures Blog, który do niedawna pełny był czarodziejsko-gotyckich miniatur, a obecnie zapełnia się miniaturami związanym z absyntem. Szczerze pisząc nigdy tego nie piłam, niemniej miniatury związane z tym drinkiem chętnie oglądam. Bardzo podobała mi się np.: fontanna do absyntu w miniaturze, którą można było kupić na Etsy. Całkiem pomysłowa zresztą.:) Nie będąc fanką absyntu, ograniczyłam się jednak do tych maleńkich wydruków. Przedstawiają one 3 podstawowe rosliny stosowane do przygotowania tego alkoholu: piołun, koper i anyż - jak dla mnie, mało smaczne zestawienie.;) Ale obrazki bardzo ładne, w dodatku drukowane na papierze pergaminowym.:)

I too love old botanical prints and like you, am absolutely fascinated with absinthe. Have you seen how these liquor is prepared with a samovar looking container? It is very interesting :). Must find a reason to try and miniaturise that container :)

Nice posters! The history of absinthe is quite interesting. I didn't realize that there is so much absinthe-related accoutrements, called "absinthiana". Here is a fun link with pictures of absinthiana objects: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absinthiana
