You’re The One For Me Letterpress Print
My new letterpress mini-print is available for only $10—and just in time for Valentine’s Day! Each signed and numbered 5″ × 7″ (~13 × 18 cm) card is printed in handsome gender-neutral dusty mauve ink on pillowy white double-thick Crane Duplex 220# cotton stock by noted printmaker James Tucker of The Aesthetic Union. Originally designed for my wife, it’s can now be yours to frame up, throw on your “cool junk” shelf, or wax all lovey-dovey on the flip-side for your significant (or somewhat significant) other. Whatever you do, Romeo, order one now before this limited edition is sold out.

LK Monogram
Since being married, I’ve made it a habit to letter something for my wife when our anniversary rolls around each year. It’s no secret that I also use the occasion as a selfish excuse to do something that I might not otherwise have the opportunity to draw.

Lately I’ve been admiring the elegant work of Reynolds Stone, a British engraver and designer who worked during the middle part of the last century. I am particularly impressed by his modest yet masterfully-lettered book labels. Spending time with his work has certainly given me a greater appreciation for the depth —and breadth— of his abilities.

Vive La Tote
When your personal library is as out of hand as mine, you never seem to have enough bags to lug around your lettering and typography treasures. So, after penciling some custom roundhand for a recent Print for Good poster, I got the idea to have the lettering printed on the side of a handy tote. The fellas at Awesome Dudes Printing in Philly painstakingly plastered my Vive La Plume penmanship in pliable white plastisol ink on black 6 oz. 100% cotton fabric. The 14.5″ W × 15.5″ H carryall is lightweight yet sturdy with 22-inch long straps. Head on over to the T&L Store to grab one of these limited edition hand-printed totes.
