In the Garden of Earthly Delights

Finally the Bosch book is with Celine Lombardo, for the new, pink-skin quarter leather binding. Letterpress printed pages are complete for the full, extremely limited edition of 12, etchings looking pretty awesome with hand painting by Mindy Belloff.

Spring in the Studio

In the Studio this month we had quite a range of activities from printing letterpress business cards and invitations, to print consults and group visits, including:

A dozen designers came to the Studio, who were being  honored by Traditional Home magazine.  We explained letterpress and a condensed history of printing,  designed a lovely broadside in metal type, and printed them as a memorable keepsake for everyone.  Good lookin group!

It was great working with Peter, the Father of the Bride, Kate, on this lovely Florida wedding.  Mindy Belloff designed a large square invitation with a nautilus shell interior, and  letterpress printed it in 3-colors with soft blues and soft black text.  The reply card is a pretty seahorse design, and the information card sports a little star fish. The custom mixed inks match the pretty blue/green envelope liners. Guest addressing in the same script and roman fonts, along with custom postage stamps, added to the final details.

We had a very nice group of Middle School students from Brooklyn, who learned about the history of printing and the recreation of Mindy’s Goddard Declaration of Independence in a morning talk, with letterpress demo.
