Bespoke Press Giveaway

Bespoke Press is an amazing letterpress boutique that turns out some of the most beautiful creations I've ever seen. They design, print, and sell stationery, limited edition prints, and offer framing services for their prints.

Recently, they finished printing a collection of three color illustrations by various emerging illustrators from around the globe. As I mentioned in my Letterpress & Bookbinding post, multicolored letterpress prints are A Lot of work, not to mention all the time and effort put into the artwork by the illustrators. Once you print one color (and you can only do one color per run), you must align the next plate/color perfectly, so that the illustration will make sense. The illustrations with lots of intricate details astound me when I stop to think about how much time and effort was put into each print. This project is a labor of love and is seriously amazing.

Here are a few of my favorites:

"Christopher's Ears," by Chelsey Freyta

If you'd like to enter to win a full set of 10(!!!) limited edition prints (valued at $650), peruse the collection of prints here, then go to their blog and leave a comment telling them which print is your favorite. You have until October 15 to enter... Good luck!!

* I think that if I don't win the contest, 1.) I will cry a little, and 2.) I will be adding these to my Christmas List (if they're still available)!!

** Thank you to Nole for posting this contest first, and alerting me to the awesomeness!
