The holidays are right around the corner (already!), and I’m usually completely unprepared. This year I’m trying to do better. I’ve started by bookmarking things that catch my eye and might make lovely gifts/stocking stuffers for friends. I noticed that I was saving a lot of blue… All these are under $20.

An Etsy shop we love belongs to graphic designer, Sabrina, of Small Caps Berlin. She works with paper, letters and a letterpress machine, printing everything by hand on Golding Pearl Letterpress, her Adana 8×5 or her Korrex proof press. She uses metal or wood type, vintage paper, old maps, magnesium or photopolymer clichés for the illustrations.
