I’m a landscape architect, and while that doesn’t mean I’ll plant your front yard for free (or at all), it does mean that I have developed a slight obsession with trees and identifying them (in their latin names). FH came up with the great idea of naming out tables after my favourite trees (and then some other ones becuase I don’t have that many favourites) it fits too as our venue is out in the woods.
I would love to find an old textbook or science book or tree identification guide that I can take the pages from and use as part of our table numbers but I’m not having anuy luck (unless I want to spend a fortune which isn’t going to happen as I plan to tear the pages out)
I really want that old look with the picture of the leaf with the fig.1 latin name common name thing.

The Graphics Fairy offers a surprising number of images from antique science books. If you want to save a fortune, and you don’t mind a bit of DIY, you could use those images, design something unique, and print our your table numbers.

@julies1949: i have looked on ebay and haven’t seen what I want for a reasonable price. It may be one of these things where what i want doesn’t actually exist – I have a picture in my head that I probably completely made up.
Maybe I’ll check the library, they might have an old volume that I could photocopy and mess around with though….
Thanks for the suggestion!

@MsGinkgo: you responded while I was editing- adding Etsy. There are quite a few books listed at very reasonable prices. You probably would have to email the sellers to get to see an inside page in some cases.
