Sophie's lino block skills are highlighted with a black page Japanese Album from Moleskine. The accordion pages fan out, creating a tunnel effect that beautifully highlights her metallic inks, applied in a repeating pattern with a lino block.
Who doesn't love a good bookstore? Heck, I'm happy with the Barnes and Noble at a mall. But there's no denying that a beautiful setting makes browsing stacks of books seem all the more desirable. On your travels, don't forget to stop in and browse at one of these beautiful bookshops. Each is worth a detour!

Ever wonder how we do custom logo embossing jobs? Here's a job we did today for Wollensky's Grill, a casual dining spin off of world renowned Smith and Wollensky's Steakhouse.
Take a peek at our process from design to completion.
Before we begin stamping, we send you a digital proof to make sure we understand what you want.
A metal stamp is made of your logo design. That block is mounted in our hydraulic press, and a brace installed to ensure the book is positioned correctly.
Once the setup is complete, we can begin stamping. A double button push brings the metal stamp down to press against the book.
A roll of pigment foil glides between the metal stamp and the book, and the design is transferred so all the pigment is fused to the book cover. See how the design removed all the pigment and left an empty spot just where the ink was used? All that pigment is now on the book cover.
Each book is individually inspected to make sure it meets our quality standard.
Each book in your order is printed in the same way - sometimes we have just a few, sometimes, several thousand. Either way, each book is meticulously printed one at a time.
Finished books ready to pack up and send to Wollensky's Grill.
As we improve our techniques and get comfortable experimenting with ink and surface combinations, we are turning out better and better results. It is so exciting for us to see a digital design come to life in this way.

August 26, 2014 - Martha's Vineyard - True story...
Not sure who wrote the entire US Constitution in foot high chalk letters on the West Tisbury bike path - maybe it was meant to refresh our President's memory on his annual ride - but it was an awesome sight to stumble upon on a ride through the woods.
This paper is made from stone. Yes, that's right - our Ogami stone paper notebooks are made from REPAP, which is a paper that is formed from limestone and other ecological resins. However, these 100% tree-free notebooks are not as rough around the edges as they sound. The smooth, durable, and easy to write on pages of a stone paper notebook are unlike any other writing experience you've had before. When you get your hands on an Ogami journal, you'll never want another type of notebook again.
Originally conceived as a interior design exhibit for Singapore's Saturday InDesign Expo, origami butterflies are suspended from the ceiling, in flight patterns that resemble butterfly group migrations.
Wouldn't this be a fantastic decor for a wedding or party? Maybe a nursery? Oh, the possibilities!
Each origami butterfly in the circular path represents a dream in various stages-the emergence of an idea to the idea being in transit and then taking flight. Every butterfly has its own character and destination, but when flying together, new dreams are created and celebrated.
The use of translucent paper allows light to pass through the wings of the origami butterflies, thus creating a beautiful weave of colours.
