Photo. A book, Apawthecaria, with a folded map leafed into its pages. The cover shows a mouse and a pigeon standing on top of a wooden table in a beam of warm light, reading from a book filled with hand drawn illustrations of plants. The mouse holds up a pestle taller than itself, and around the two animals are plucked flowers, large brass scales, a block of wax, closed books, and other potion making apparatus.

Photo. A sticker sheet from the Apawthecaria Deluxa bundle. There are 7 differently shaped stamps with die-cut franking around their edges, so that each stamp peels to look like a realistic stamp. The stamps feature natural elements, like moth wings and pressed flowers, as if they were made by animals for a beastly postal service.
Photo. A blank post card atop a sticker sheet. The post card is stuck with a sticker-stamp on it, peeled from the sticker sheet behind it.
