Mary Delany Pocket Folder
Letter-sized Pocket Folder with seams on both sides to form a pocket to safely carry a variety of items, larger than the regular A4 folder, and a tab area to label contents.
Mrs. Mary Delany at age 72 created nearly a thousand botanical collages using her own method. These delicate hand-cut floral designs utilized collage of colored papers with body color and watercolor. More than two centuries later her extraordinary work continues to inspire.
