Letterpress Food Snob Place Cards

Letterpress Food Snob Place Cards

These letterpress Food Snob Place Cards from Greenwich Letterpress totally made me laugh out loud. Do you know offhand what a cardoon is? How about a Chioggia beet? If so, then you might be a vegetable or root-crop snob, respectively. I love that the place cards categorize food snobs, and I think that the collection would be a fantastic ice breaker or conversation starter at a dinner party. Just be sure that your food snob friends are able to poke fun at themselves, or else things could get ugly!

Details from several of the humorous place cards:

Alef Betty Hebrew Alphabet Prints

Alef Betty Hebrew Alphabet Prints

I love a well designed alphabet print, but I don’t know that I’ve seen a foreign alphabet print before now. These sleek, modern Hebrew alphabet prints come from Alef Betty, Tsilli Pines’ new shop, which is devoted to modern Hebrew artwork. You may know Tsilli from her gorgeous, handmade ketubah (Jewish marriage contract) work, and you can check out her entire menagerie of creative projects over at Tsilli.com.

Alef Betty Hebrew Alphabet Prints

The alphabet prints feature letterforms based on two typefaces from the Hebrew canon: Frank Ruehl and Haim and were printed by the awesome Pinball Publishing on chipboard using soy-based inks. You can read the inspiring story behind Alef Betty and purchase the posters in Classic, Blocks, and Circle designs (red and blue colorways) at the Alef Betty shop. – via design*sponge and CoinOp
