Latin Altar Cards Upcoming Revisions

Today, I'd like to take a few minutes to announce some changes we're making to a few of our designs. Requiem Vintage Diamond, pictured, is the first revision completed. The center card remains the same while the two side card's crosses have been removed so that the text could be larger making them easier to read. Since this is a minor improvement, we will delay release of the new version until our inventory has been exhausted.

Other designs scheduled for minor revisions include Pieta and Requiem Black. Again, these are minor revisions to graphics. The Latin texts will remain the same or larger in type size. Our latest project design based on the Iquitos Cathedral in Peru, has been placed on hold until these revisions have been completed.

Lastly, I'd like to let you know that I stumbled upon a bit of information about a true Latin altar card artist! As mentioned in a July post, I have been curious about artists in the past who have designed the beautiful Tridentine altar cards of yesteryear. Well, it seems that a talented English woman named Nina Somerset designed a set of altar cards as well as other things for her church in London. Take a look at the pictures of her work. They're absolutely gorgeous. If I ever get a chance to go to London, I hope to see them in person.

That's about it for now. Until next time, enjoy your week!
