Capitalis Monumentalis

Look, these floor tiles are so beautiful, made by Elisabet Berg who is a Swedish graphic designer working with i.a. cast iron. The plates are available with three different quotes by Carl Linnaeus, as a tribute to this famous botanist.

OMNIA MIRARI ETIAM TRITISSIMA
”To wonder at everything, even the unremarkable”

FAMAM EXTENDERE FACTIS
"To enhance ones reputation by deeds"

INNOCUE VIVITO
"Live blameless"

All quotations are made in Capitalis Monumentalis, the elegant letter form that the ancient Romans used. Very nice feature to have both indoor and outdoor!
