Curious Prints was born in 2010 and is the creation of Louisiana born designer, Kate Faulk. What started as an outlet to share the vintage images she loved so much has grown into a lifestyle brand offering home decor and accessories. "I have always been fascinated by birds, insects, the creepy crawly things I came across as a kid.
I grew up on a farm in South Louisiana and it's still my happy place. As my personal collection of vintage science prints has grown, I have discovered how much I love connecting with others through a shared love of vintage art.
As a graphic designer by trade, I have developed a passion for retouching and restoring vintage images and experimenting with the printing process. This curated collection is ever evolving and I continue to try out new processes and materials." - K.F.
About our process - As vintage book lovers, we scout antique stores, estate sales, markets, and online book dealers to track down the most unique scientific illustrations out there. The art we reproduce is from 1920s to as early as the 1600s.
All art is scanned, retouched and printed by us in Austin, TX. We also take our paper very seriously at Curious Prints. We use paper made in the USA using 100% cotton made from cotton linters (linters are considered "recovered fibers" by the EPA. By using linters, we are putting to use what would have become waste). Our giclee prints are acid free, archival and museum quality ensuring a long life span - even outside of a frame.
