Letterpress Love.

Guest Blogger: Abbey Hendrickson of Aesthetic Outburst.

I am a total sucker for art books and all things letterpress. I work at the Western New York Book Arts Collaborative, so I'm always on the look out for beautiful prints and zines. Today I thought I'd share part of my collection with you. The print above is by an artist named Claire Taylor (her shop is still in the works). A letterpressed Bill Murray?! So fabulous! My dear friend Rachael of Pistachio Press printed the beauty below (designed by Tara Hogan). Rachael is super talented…and is one of the busiest people I know. Take a look at her website and I’m sure you’ll see why.

This last print is also by Claire Taylor. Who could resist a pig named Razzle? Not me.

Thanks so much for taking a peek at my little world and special thanks to Victoria for inviting me to be a guest blogger this week! If you're in Buffalo on May 21st, stop by Western New York Book Arts Collaborative for our grand opening! And be sure to say hello...I'll be the crazed-looking girl hoarding all of the prints and books.

A letterpressed Bill Murray? Wow. I am in love. That is so crazy cool. But the piglet "Razzle" is also pulling on my heart strings. Too cute.
