An herbarium is a collection of preserved plants, likely used by Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus when he devised his naming system for organisms in the 1700s.
Though Herbarium breaks from Stig Lindberg’s typical use of folkloric motifs, the design is imbued with a similar sense of whimsicality and brightness of color. The design was printed by the Swedish screenprinter Erik Ljungberg, who was highly regarded among Sweden’s textile designers for his ability to accurately translate their designs into high quality prints.
