Geraldine Adams' Giveaway: French herbs 8x10 Fine Art Print

Geraldine Adams' Giveaway: French herbs 8x10 Fine Art Print

I made this 8×10 print showcasing 6 hand drawn illustrations of herbs in a retro French style with their names displayed in both French and English.
The herbs are the most commonly used herbs in contemporary French cuisine: chives, dill, thyme, cilantro, basil and rosemary.
I was inspired by vintage French school posters. I added the English translation so you can learn some French, too, voilà!
I printed this illustration myself on archival acid free paper with bright pigment inks. My signature is on the front.
