Ginkgo leaves falling at once

"All of a sudden I realized that the tree was dropping its leaves - all at once - on its own. I jumped up and ran outside. It was a magnificent sight. I stood there with my mouth open as I watched the leaves fall to the ground. It was a shower of gold. Beautiful little fans were gently flitting and floating to the ground. Some were twirling, and others fell slowly as though they were golden snowflakes.
It was a moment of pure joy. I could feel my heart swelling with happiness as I stood there smiling and thinking what a privilege it was to see this glorious display of nature."

Where can I get/buy pressed Ginkgo leaves?

Hi, I am an artist and have recently started used pressed ginkgo leaves in my mixed media collages.
Do you know where I can buy nicely pressed, flat ginkgo leaves? My sister has been getting them for me from a friend's tree. I hate to keep asking. I ordered some from a pressed flower place in California and they were unusable! They stacked the leaves all together and pressed them......the stems from the stacked leaves made 'bruised" dark lines criss crossing all the leaves. I can't believe they would pressed the leaves in that way.
I would appreciate any information you could give me.

Ginkgos and Logan Airport 9/11 Memorial




The first two planes hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001 took off from Logan International Airport, setting in motion a chain of events that changed the world. Massport officials unveiled plans for a $3.5 million memorial that will commemorate Logan as the "Point of Departure."
Visitors entering the two-acre memorial will find two separate walkways diverging from the same spot, symbolizing that American Flight 11 and United Flight 175 both took off from Logan that morning. As the planes took different routes to the World Trade Center, the walkways each will offer a different path, winding through a grove of Ginkgo trees.
