The press & studio have been humming along lately with sundry fun & interesting projects. One of which is Olive’s 3rd birthday party invitation – designed as a pocketbook and inspired by vintage Dick & Jane books. Written and illustrated by Erin Cochran, Olive’s ├╝ber-talented mother. The 8-page booklet is printed in velvety black letterpress ink and hand-stitched with Japanese silk marigold yellow ribbon. The finish calligraphy on the envelope is the delicious icing on the cake – calligraphy by Michele Papineau. Stay tuned, I’ll be posting more photos of the little book in its full splendor soon!

It’s a real joy working together with Olive’s mother & grandmother on these projects. Each year brings something new and inspiring. You can see our little history together here. Happy Birthday Olive!
