every time i remember these are on cardboard i get so sad because i want them to be around forever and ever but i also kind of love that they’re on such a vulnerable surface because it gives the images a deeper meaning and almost makes them more precious, especially considering that the first one, which looks so platonic, is the only one reinforced with wood and i could talk about this series for daysss
