Today's post is short and sweet as there's much catching up to do behind the scenes and a lot of excitement about the book I just received in the mail!
It's the new Ladies of Letterpress Book and guess what?! I'm featured in it. Yes, I am giddy like a little school girl but who wouldn't be right? It's so exciting to see my work alongside so many talented and amazing women. Even my husband, who's a rather quiet man, was so excited for me and I found him looking through the book on his own. :)
So what's Ladies of Letterpress? It's a wonderful group of women who are involved in letterpress and I can't tell you how inspiring it is to be in a group of so many women with the same passion, where you can share all the joys of printing and all the disasters too.
The books is mainly a showcase of work from studios run by women around the world but nestled in there are a couple of more in depth interviews with a couple of studios, like this one with Judith Berliner of Full Circle Press.
The entire book is also perforated so you can tear away the pages that have a full sized poster to hang on your wall. One of my favorites is by Lilco Design + Letterpress Studio. Don't you love this design? I might have to tear this one out, or maybe buy a second book so I can tear it out, I'm too OCD to just tear it out of this one copy. :)
Then of course there's a tear away of my Letterpress Love Poem!
And finally, here's a photo of my section in the book, where they talk a bit about my studio and the work that was chosen for the book.
The book is much larger than I thought at 11x14 so the tear away posters will make great wall art. All in all, the book is a fantastic collection of truly wonderful work by dedicated women around the world. All giddiness aside, it really is such an honor to be included in it.
The book is available for pre-order on Amazon if you'd like to check it out, it's a great addition to any letterpress library, specially with 86 removable posters!
Hope you enjoyed the quick look into this fantastic book and if you have it or do purchase it, let me know what you think here in the comments.
