Bespoke Press Illustrators Project

I think I’m in love with Bespoke Press’ Illustrators Project, a collection of limited edition letterpress prints featuring lovely illustrations by different artists and illustrators. Gorgeous!

You can read more about each individual illustration and its creator over at Bespoke Press’ blog, and you can purchase the prints from Bespoke’s Etsy or online shop. Here’s a peek at some of my favorites from the collection:

Louella Press Ornament Cards

Halloween’s over — and I hope that you all had a great one — so can I assume that it’s alright to start posting Christmas cards? I mean, I did see that they were putting up the Christmas tree at one of the local shopping centers this weekend, and Target was setting up their Christmas decorating area, too. Certainly these types of places wouldn’t do this type of thing too early, right?!

Well, even if I’m a tad early, I just have to start posting some of the holiday lovelies that I’ve been coming across in my web travels, including these gorgeous letterpress ornament cards — available in three stylistic series — by Louella Press.

The Bold Tidings ornament series features bright, modern pattern and design:
