How adorable are these business cards from A Fine Press for author and illustrator Fred Koehler? Matthew from A Fine Press letterpress printed the three-color design on Crane’s 110# florescent white Lettra paper. I love the way the soft fields of color mix with the illustration outline, and the illustration itself is just so sweet.
From Matthew: Fred attended SCWBI in New York last month and wanted to bring a card that reflected the children’s book he was working on. The gray is a halftone with some subtle shading around the outlines and in Jr.’s skin tone. The shading and skintone went down so well, I almost thought adding the outlines would ruin it, but they really made it pop! These were hand-fed on my Chandler & Price – the registration was a bear!
