Did you know: North Carolina is the ONLY of the fifty states to have an official State Toast?

"The Old North State" was written and first delivered by Mrs. Leonora Monteiro in 1904.

I have hand-drawn all the native plants of North Carolina that are listed in the toast to create a border around the text: long leaf pine, cotton bloom, scuppernong, southern moss, jessamine, galax, rhododendron.

The toast also mentions Mount Mitchell, the highest Appalachian peak - located just Northeast of Asheville in Pisgah National Forest.

The text "Esse Quam Videri" is at the bottom of the print. This is the North Carolina State Motto. It translates roughly as "to [authentically] be not merely to appear," or put more simply, the distinction between essence and appearance.

This letterpress print is handmade wall art. It is a 12”x18” letterpress poster.
