These prints are part of a series to "do better".  The project started as a series of watercolour paintings of birds on sheet music back in 2010, which were produced on selectively chosen vintage music sheet.

This particular collection of prints is made from forest sustainability certified (FSC) sources, which adds a visual texture to the paper.  The "plastic" sleeve is made from polyactic acid (PLA), which is derived from fermented plant starch.
