Books & Letterpress

Today I worked on a little project that combines my love of books with my love of letterpress. What better way to bring these two together than in a form of a bookmark!

bookmark 1

Seems that physical books are becoming more and more overlooked and devalued these days. For me however, no Kobo reader will ever be able to replace the beauty of holding a book in my hands and flipping through its pages in that real tangible way.

This bookmark was printed on my antique printing press, the Golding Pearl Improved No.11, using metal ornaments that were set by hand. No ink was used during the printing process, which resulted in a beautiful and delicate blind deboss.
