Paper Art – White Doilies and Orange Thumbtacks

I love the way simple materials can come together to create something so beautiful – in the case of this installation, both a lovely decor element and a lovely piece of art.

Menu Books – Pretty Pretty Paper

I am absolutely loving these menu books that Christine at cevd is working on for her upcoming wedding — the translucent white ink on pale gray cover stock? Absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to see the final product!

I'm also loving these photos of the printing process — I love to see a letterpress in action!
