Poplar Leaves Gocco Print

Like it or not — I definitely like it — fall is on its way. The weather was a bit chilly here over the weekend, and a touch of autumn was in the air. It made me think of all of the wonderful things that are to come in what is one of my favorite, if not my favorite, seasons. Spiced apple cider, pumpkins everywhere, warm and comforting foods, Halloween, and beautiful falling leaves, like those found in the colorful Poplar Leaves Gocco print by artist Mindy Wilson. See more of Mindy’s wonderfully evocative photos and prints over here.

Typoretum + I Love Typography = Awesome

John Boardley of ilovetypography.com recently commissioned Typoretum letterpress studio to print a typographical design set in the recently released digital font, Restraint, and the result is stunning. The relief plate used to create the letterpress prints is a work of art in and of itself! Check out a few of Typoretum’s images from the creation process below, and purchase the Typographic Restraint limited edition print at the i love typography shop.

Origami Roses

I spotted these beautiful origami roses over at Folding Trees, and even though they look a little complicated, I think that they would be a fun weekend project once you get the hang of making them. Folding tutorials for three types of roses — the Bird Base Rose (top), the Standard Rose (middle), and the Kawasaki Rose (bottom) — are included over at Bloomize. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Dahlia Press

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my virtual stroll through the portfolio of the recently launched website for Dahlia Press, a Seattle, Washington based letterpress shop run by designer Stephanie Clarke-Beedle.

Dahlia Press focuses on simpicity and quality in their designs, which is evident in a portfolio filled with beautiful letterpress invitations, business cards, wedding suites, and greetings. You can purchase ready to order letterpress greeting cards at the Dahlia Press Etsy shop, and here’s a peek at some of their custom work:

DIY Bridesmaids Cards

These DIY Bridesmaids Cards by Anna Bond (Rifle Design) for Once Wed make me wish that I had an upcoming wedding. Such a wonderfully cute idea, and one that doesn’t look too difficult, either. I have to admit that I’m swooning over the calligraphy work on the envelope and the card, as well:
