I am an enthusiastic lover of type (well, there are exceptions...sorry Comic Sans and Papyrus). And when beautiful type is then translated into even more gorgeous letterpress prints, well, sign me up! Jessica Hische, of this fabulous apartment and the Daily Drop Cap, has finally released a selection of her alphabet prints to delight our walls.
Jessica Hische's amazing lettering skills, involving equal parts design, typography and illustration (as well as brown sugar and heavy cream according to Jason of Heads of State), has been lusted after by type fans for the past few years.
Now that some of her individual drop caps (one for each letter of the alphabet plus an ampersand!) are now letterpressed on Crane's 110lb Lettra paper in limited editions of 75, we can show are appreciation of her skills in a frame rather than a computer screen.
Jessica's letterpressed letters are available for purchase here for $40 per 8 x 8 inch print.
