The current exhibition at the Gutenberg Museum, entitled "Herbals – from the German Ortus Sanitatis to herbal healers", has on display the first richly illustrated book on medicinal herbs issued in the German language: the famous Gart der Gesundheit (German Ortus Sanitatis) from 1485. Our set of six postcards features six different motifs from the famous herbal:
