Tulip March

© Sara Smedley 2014
Quite a while back, I promised to share the inspiration for my Spoonflower print collection, "Tulip March."
While researching mid-century landscape design one day, I came across a post on the New York Botanical Garden's website titled, From the Library: Mad for Mad Men, the Garden in 1966. Included were photos from their archives. This contact sheet is from a 1966 Dutch-themed exhibition.

Mid-century! Dutch! Tulips! Three irresistible sources of inspiration to me. This visual step back into time was all it took to set me on the tulip path once again, as you will soon see.
