"Collezione Dante" Letterpress Notecards 5-pack
Our friends Nic & Jennifer at Thunderwing Press created this gorgeous, limited run of notecards just for us. We asked them to make something that doesn't carry a specific message or image, but that rather feels like a pure, abstract representation of what they do. They came back with the idea of printing a type "lock-up" directly the way it is packaged when bought. In the words of Nic & Jennifer:
"Nothing could be truer and simpler in representing the history and spirit of letterpress, as this kind of arrangement is an archetype in the transfer and sale of lead typography."
They eventually settled on a preformed lock-up of 10pt. Dante Roman for the notecard. A hand-set colophon, describing the details of the project, is printed on the back of the card.
