Being a graphic designer brings with it the obsession with all things type, whether it be an irrational love of the ampersand (&) or an undying love for old printing presses and with the love of the latter, comes the lust for wood type.
And my mother, as wonderful as she is, indulges my love of all things font related because she at heart is just as smitten with the written word as I am.
So it’s thanks to her that these 5 beauties sit upon my mantle, showing off the wear and tear of years of hard work.
And also thanks to Preserve Cottage, an Etsy shop that specializes in “Vintage Letterpress Kitchenwares Homewares and Sundries.”
And with that, my heart is happy.
