Menus for a natural setting

These menus, while very much unlike my usual design style, are among my favorites that I've produced.  Designed for a photo shoot collaboration with A&B Creative in a beautiful Oregon woods setting, I felt that a very soft, organic look was a must.

I created the menu by first digitally printing a vintage botanical print featuring ferns onto a cotton rag art paper, then letterpress printing the menu and monogram on top of it.  Last, I tore each edge by hand to give them an irregular look that lent itself to the natural setting.  Fully inspired by stones, ferns and water.
