“T” Towels

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

There are just some things you can never have too many of. For me, tea towels are one such item. So when saw this set by Studiopatró it felt like they were made just for me! The unexpected use of type is beyond brilliant, I love how the T’s create such a simple and beautiful pattern! Also, be sure to check out the rest of their collection. The selection is simply stunning and the shop is equally as gorgeous.

Colosseo by Cameron Moll

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Happy Monday to all of you, hope you had a fantastic weekend! I wanted to start the week off with yet another beautiful piece of letterpress work. This replication of the Roman Coliseum was designed by Cameron Moll and entirely made up of type. This stunning piece of art took Cameron approximately 25o hours to type set. He thoughtfully used only characters from the Goudy Trajan and Bembo Pro fonts which are Italian and Latin type cases respectively. also in celebration of the poster’s release Cameron is also hosting a super giveaway, including 2 iPads, a limited edition martian poster and dribble invites.

These posters are available for purchase on Cameron’s site and come in either white or black. Interesting side note, Bryce Knudson of Bjørn Press who printed these also letterpressed our wedding invites – small world!
