In celebration of Mortise & Tenon Magazine’s first 10 issues, we’re releasing this beautiful image of all 10 issues’ wax-sealed trade cards in poster form. Comprised of multiple high-resolution photographs seamlessly woven together, the trade cards seem to jump off the paper with 3-dimensional clarity. From the earliest card featured with Issue One (many of which Joshua hand-dyed in his furniture studio and are now highly sought collector’s items) to the most recent editions which were included in a special commemorative boxed set, this collection is meant to salute handcraft heritage.
Each of these trade cards featured a unique or historic image and text highlighting its accompanying issue in the tradition of historic makers’ trade cards which were given away and passed around town to promote quality goods and services. From Eric Sloane illustrations to tongue-in-cheek Victorian hyperbole, we think you’ll enjoy looking these over once again – or, for the first time.
This 16" tall, 28” wide poster is printed on heavyweight, matte-coated paper in the United States.
