Here's a snapshot of what we're working on and what's new in our Asheville studio
The current exhibition at the CCCD, entitled 'Made in WNC', "examines the designer-maker movement through a regionally specific lens, considering how particular histories, geography, economics, technology, and education inform an international movement on a local level." We designed the exhibition logo, styled and photographed the front cover, created the design and layout for the 64 page catalog and managed the print production.

Olive - Olea europaea. New three color letterpress prints printed on recycled chipboard. Available in the shop.
Details from 'Quiet Work' - a book about the studio and homestead of A Little Weather. We designed and hand bound these little pamphlet books that give a glimpse into the life of Jessica Green who lives and works in Little Sandy Mush, NC.
The first spread of this book beautifully reads, "I weave to slow the world down. This book, like the life within it, requires a quiet mind." Thinking on that while hand-sewing 'Quiet Work'.
Detail of a letterpress printed monogram on the back flap of wedding envelopes. Printed in soft grey on baronial flaps.
One brad? Not that impressive. Hundreds of brads all lined up in a row? An interesting detail.
A new batch of leather journals have hit the shop!
