During his relatively brief career as an architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh (Scottish, 1868–1928) produced a wide range of works, from the visionary building he designed for the Glasgow School of Art, to the sophisticated tea rooms he created for tea entrepreneur Catherine Cranston, to the textiles, furniture, light fixtures, tableware, and wall decor that graced his distinctive interiors. Today the Mackintosh style—characterized by a restrained yet compelling use of decoration, airy and bright rooms, an emphasis on vertical lines, and a fusion of geometric and organic motifs—is appreciated for its simplicity and elegance.
This selection of embossed notecards features four designs (three of each) adapted from Mackintosh’s signature stencils. One presents his high-backed chair designs; the other three incorporate his iconic rose designs.
Please note: the images are not printed with ink. The shapes of the illustrations are embossed on high-quality recycled paper.
