I have been visiting the High Line with my daughter since the week it opened in June 2009. It has been one of our favorite escapes in the city since that first visit. We love it year round. I like seeing which plants are in bloom and my daughter looks forward to the gelato and ice pops (ok, we both look forward to those). It was one of the highlights of my career then, to be invited to the Friends of the High Line office last spring to talk about a collaboration. They gave us a High Line Plant Guide, detailing the many gorgeous plants that bloom in the park throughout the year. Inspired, we created a set of letterpress coasters featuring vintage illustrations of ten of the flowers. These are now available on their website at www.thehighline.org/shop.
Although we have a lot of letterpress coasters around the house, this set if my favorite as it is a tiny part of the High Line in our home. Plus, it's really nice to have some flowers around in this frigid season.
