A reproduction of vintage flash cards, used to teach children to read. This work is printed on archival paper, framed in handsome black wood, and protected under glass. While flash cards are designed for children, their classic designs and messages are evocative, often nostalgic. Preserved and framed, flash cards become a witty decorating idea -- sometimes tongue-in-cheek, other times with thoughtful messages. The ability of art to establish a mood cannot be overstated. Well aware of this power, Smith & Co. specializes in artwork that evokes a simpler, less harried time. These elegant, charming prints will not only add warmth and vitality to your decor but will also encourage you to appreciate the beauty of everyday pleasures.
