ATLANTA, Georgia – [February 23, 2016] Jewel Branding & Licensing is proud to announce the launch of the New York Botanical Garden Collection with Surface View. Brokered by Jewel Branding, this unique collaboration between Surface View and The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) brings to life a carefully curated selection of exquisite botanical, architectural, and horticultural works of art from the Rare Book Collections of the iconic living museum’s Metz Library.
“We are thrilled to partner with Surface View on this very special project. A reverence for beauty, quality, and history are inherent in Surface View’s product range; the captivating collaboration is a welcome venue for sharing NYBG’s rare archival holdings with consumers. Each piece in the collection – from intricate wall murals to whimsical lampshades – is threaded in a rich heritage that’s been preserved for centuries,” said Meredith Counts, Director of Licensing and Product Development at NYBG.
Bursting with beautiful and vibrant floral imagery taken from hand drawn studies and aged seed packets, this collection can be transformed into beautiful artworks and unique interior decorations by using the Surface View website to experiment with rescaling and cropping the imagery to create a thoroughly contemporary feel.
