During our parent teacher conference at my daughter’s school today I discovered this poster. Can someone please turn this into a typographic-letterpress-printed masterpiece? I’ll buy it.
This print by Will Bryant made me smile! Sure, I Like Fun!
I am dreaming of an entire wall in my studio set up with this pegboard shelving system. Made by the Hornsby Berowra Men’s Shed, discovered over on Apartment Diet.
My friend Arianna Orland of Paper Jam Press just stopped by Studiomates and told me about her latest collaboration with Blik. As you might know, she makes amazing letterpress printed posters, which we sell as Tattly and that are now available as wall decal from no other than Blik. Cool, right?
Oliver Jeffers recently launched an updated version of his wonderful World Map. Oliver drew the original map with pencil on paper and reproduced it on beautiful double-weight paper with a self healing natural cork backing for you to easily push pins into. Each print is signed by Oliver, embossed with an exclusive seal and mailed in a tube to ensure it arrives in the very best condition. Cool, right?
Lots of fantastic prints over on Editions of 100.
Let it Go Banner by Artist Ashley Brown Durand.
I am slowly but surely developing a slight obsession for all things ‘moon’. This Moon Night Light is fueling the fire. (Also comes as Earth)
Team Holstee fell in love with this vintage WWI poster by Frederick G. Cooper. And after giving it a slightly refreshed look, this original poster released by the U.S. Food Administration is now available as a letterpress print.
Well done, Holstee.

SLÎT is a minimal bike hook shelf that folds away when not in use.
This Anatomy of a Bicycle print made me look. Lovely.
I just burst into a ‘I really really want this’ song when I discovered this metal Cinema Type Board. It comes with one pack of double sided font cards and holds up to 14 cards. It was designed by Goodwin + Goodwin and made in England.
So totally #wishlisted.
This print of Apollo 1 Astronauts Working by the Pool made me smile. It shows them practicing water egress procedures in a swimming pool at Ellington Air Force Base (EAFB), Houston, Texas. Astronaut Edward H. White II rides life raft in the foreground. Astronaut Roger B. Chaffee sits in hatch of the boilerplate model of the spacecraft. Astronaut Virgil I. Grissom, third member of the crew, waits inside the spacecraft. June, 1966.
I totally want one of these prints for our studio! Available over on PrintCollection.
This Hand Shadow Puppet Chart made me look. Tempted to buy one for the kids room.
Forebruary is a wall calendar that you do not need to replace. Ever. The movable frame above the surface contains every month needed. The red stripe is not just decoration but highlights the weekend. A beauty. Congrats to the designer Ilya Birman.
My friends at Holstee just launched a fantastic new project called The Reframe. They’re taking on the sad fact that so many beautiful cards we receive live a sad life, long forgotten in some shoe boxes. Let’s celebrate them with Reframe, made from reclaimed wood of deconstructed abandoned houses in Detroit. The frames are designed to display and easily slide in any 5×7-inch card or print.
Totally backing this Kickstarter campaign! Join me?
Stina Persson just launched this limited edition Elephant print over on Wonderwall. A beauty. (You can change the currency on the site in the pulldown on the very bottom of the site.)
This is a quite beautiful Wall Desk. And if you place it high enough it could make for a great standing desk!
