Remember the sweet sentiments of the past with reproduction prints recalling the years 1860 to 1890, the women created permanent links of friendship in autograph quilts and leather-bound albums. Friends might inscribe a line of verse and a signature in fancy copperplate script under the words, “Friendship’s Offering” or “Remember Me.” Each print in Barbara Brackman’s collection is a memento of times when school friends, boyfriends and favorite aunts “played the poet” with clever sayings and elegant signatures on paper or cotton. Print designs mirror the times with names like Forget Me Not and Love’s Token in colors such as Rose Red and Tintype. This reproduction line in authentic old-fashioned shades will be the basis of many a contemporary keepsake. 40 fat quarters.
