Tales from the Desk

TalesFromtheDeskLove this handmade stationery line sold under the brand name, Tales from the Desk. Each item is created based on their original rubber stamp designs. Saw this line and had a “why didn’t we think of that” moment. We’ve had these moments a lot since starting this blog. Anyway, you can follow them on their website as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

Clare Curtis

Admiring the work of UK printmaker and illustrator, Clare Curtis. She produces limited edition prints using a variety of traditional print making methods. Of her work she writes: “The structure and pattern in plant forms is a recurring theme of my work. I enjoy drawing and studying from nature; a process that allows a complete understanding of the subject and its habit.”

If you have read Jane Austen’s books you should be familiar with the quotes illustrated on these linocut prints created by artist, Jazmin Velasco.  Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Jazmin studied graphic design, illustration, oil painting and printmaking. She is inspired by the works of Jose Guadalupe Posada and Saul Steinberg. Would certainly love to hang these graphic prints in my library.
