Antique Seed Catalog Reinvented – 1918 Dingee Guide to Rose Culture

Here is a second Dingee Guide to Rose Culture design I created, with the 1918 Seed Catalog back cover:

The stunning Black Beauty in my rose frame is from The Hugh Magnum Photography Collection at Duke University, another fabulous source for black portraits!

And here is the frame as a PNG-file too (transparent background), for you to use with your own images:

  1. I am soooo grateful to you for giving a source for the rare African American images that I can proudly use in my artwork. I appreciate it, I really do. 🙂

    1. Thank you Carol for leaving such a warm and lovely comment! My love for the Black Beauties was boosted last fall, when we did the Tart Tin Ornament Swap, and Deb sent me some wonderful ornaments with amazing portraits! I then created a whole sheet with 2,5″ tags (found here: https://wingsofwhimsy.wordpress.com/2014/12/09/black-victorian-beauty-25-tags/) and have been collecting these (indeed rare!) images since!! I’d love to see some of your artwork, please send me a private email if you have pictures to share! xoxoxo
