Calligraphy – Bluebird Studios

I first discovered Bluebird Studios a few weeks ago via Snippet & Ink, but only recently got around to exploring their work in greater detail. 

Rebecca Trawick is the talented calligrapher behind Bluebird Studios and has done some truly beautiful work.  Rebecca has worked with invtation and letterpress studios including Good on Paper and Paper Monkey Press.  These are a few of my favorite examples, but you can also find more of her calligraphy here.

I love that letterpress studios are starting to use more calligraphy and handwriting.  I love fancy scripts and typefonts as much as anyone else, but there's truly something special about letterpressed calligraphy.

{I wish I had handwriting this lovely…}

Rebecca is also an illustrator, collagist and painter who uses found materials, paper ephemera and other vintage items to create one-of-a-kind works of art and illustrations.  You can see more of her lovely artwork here.

Paper Artwork – Hide n Seek

Another beautiful giclee print to send you off for the weekend – this print seems quite appropriate for today since that the chilly autumn air has now arrived here in DC…

Lovely print by hidenseek. Have a great weekend!

Paper Artist – Tina Tarnoff Papercuts

I'm continuing to love all the wonderful papercut artwork appearing on Etsy lately – here are a few more lovely papercuts from Tina Tarnoff:
