10 Ephemera Bird and Poem Cards
Today we have an amazing collection of Ephemera Bird and Poem Cards! The exquisite Poem Card images are from a wonderful little Antique Bird book in my collection. There is no title page or date in the book, but my best guess would be that it dates to around the 1880’s. Included are the front of the card, which shows a beautiful full color illustration of a Bird and a Poem Ephemera piece that is written on the back. Be sure to read the poems! There are a couple at the end that do not include the poems, that is because the book did not include them. At any rate they would be lovely to tuck into the pocket of a Junk Journal or nice to use in your Handmade Card or Collage Projects! I hope you will enjoy this collection of Vintage Bird Illustrations.
Ephemera Bird and Poem Cards
Pictured above is a Vintage beautiful Bird with Red Head and Breast Image! This charming bird with streaked red sand brown plumage is a Linnet. It has a red head and speckled red breast with dark tail feathers. It is perched on a tiny curved branch amid beautiful yellow flowers. If you look closely you can see a Nest with Eggs in the background. I have also included a little Ephemera piece as well… it is a poem found in the book that was written about this bird. It’s quite sweet and has a wonderful aged patina to it.
Here we have a gorgeous set of Ephemera Bird and Poem Cards. Above is a charming Bird Print comes from an 1870’s British Bird Book. Perched on a pretty Floral Branch is a sweet Bullfinch. I’ve enlarged this so that you can use it as an Instant Art Printable, perfect for framing!
Here we have a very lovely Black Bird. I think the colors are particularly pretty on this one! His little poem looks like it printed off center and a bit crooked.

I think you may have the pictures of the thrush and cuckoo mixed with each other.
Oh, thanks Julie!

Thanks so much Connie 🙂
I Love this illustration, it’s so restful and beautiful! Art from the past is so much better than what I see today; people really took the time to capture the exquisite and subtle details of nature.
Thank you Susan, and I totally agree 🙂
