Thank you for your interest...and Greetings from the Heart of the Heartland!!

The images for this company come from making a relief print of objects found in Nature; fish, shells, plants, feathers, etc. Gyotaku is the Japanese name for "fish rubbing", an honored art form over 150 years old.  As to other styles of nature printing, there are as many forms as there are practitioners. Prints can even be made from flowers, bark, rocks and cobwebs.   In fact, leaf prints have been found dating back to the 1300's. Benjamin Franklin even used the plaster cast of a leaf when printing currency for the new Colonies.  Imagine all the possibilities -- the endless shapes, textures, and even the forces of Nature. I sometimes have trouble imagining it all!

You can jump over to the catalog page from here or via the button on the menu bar at the left of this site for a peek at some of the images from this company as well as information on how to order the current "FRED B. MULLETT, Stamps From Nature Prints" catalog.

Thanks...and Best Fishes to ya!  Enjoy the site!
