Paper lovers rejoice! A new line of letterpressed notebooks and notecards is coming next month to a bookstore near you. Featuring the striking palettes and designs of artists from Tokyo, Stockholm, and San Francisco, our notebooks and notecards are hand-printed in New York on vintage presses with Mohawk paper.
Each notebook set contains two different letterpressed works of art; and each notecard set includes 10 cards of two different designs and colorful envelopes. Preview this chic new take on a time-honored tradition below, and don’t miss a behind-the-scenes video of the notebooks and notecards on press at Boxcar Press in Syracuse.
Masako Kubo, who studied illustration in England and is now based in Tokyo, Japan, draws elegant pieces inspired by nature. These feminine, botanical-driven designs—at once classic and uniquely contemporary—are as one-of-a-kind as their lucky recipients.
Klas Fahlén is known for the wit of his simple but sophisticated drawings. Subtle in humor and bold in color, his notecards and notebooks make a dapper addition to any desktop.
Michael Carabetta is creative director of Chronicle Books and a passionate advocate for artists and independent printing. He conceived of these typographic gender-neutral designs with his own correspondence needs in mind.
Go on press with production manager Michelle Clair and the printers at Boxcar Press in this behind-the-scenes video of the making of our new letterpressed line.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! To celebrate the joys of letter-writing, we’re giving away the entire set of new letterpressed notebooks and notecards, plus a custom embosser from Paper Source, 100 US Postal Forever stamps, and $100 to spend on the stationery or books of your choosing on ChronicleBooks.com.
