i love letterpress

i've really been pondering the ideas of creating mini journals lately. something small and simple like a mini moleskin. it's a tricky thought though because i don't plan to bind the books myself - that's not my bag*. but i don't quite feel comfortable say, buying a moleskin, embossing an image on the front and then re-selling in (i suspect there are some serious legality issues there as well). i guess it will just be about finding the right source. i'm considering scout books, but they have a fifty minimum order (does there happen to be fifty readers who would like to buy an isavirtue journal?).

for now, i will just ogle these adorable letter press pocket books by bison books on etsy! i love how the designer has chosen to place a darker blue on a blue back ground and a darker orange on an orange background. you get the picture! i've added some recipe cards by the same company for good measure because they are incredibly beautiful!

  1. Yay for letterpress!

    Pocket books are fun *adds this of things to test once I get my letterpress*

  2. I've actually never tried Letterpress or anything like that, but seeing other bloggers working on it really makes me want to give it a shot too :)


thanks for your comment, i love hearing your thoughts!
