Poetsville

02 Aug 2012

Poetsville may sound like a timeless, backroads town—and it is, in the mind of writer/editor Candace Pearson. Poetsville is both old-school press and future online resource for people who love words and the magic they do. Its first print project: a collection of illustrated Farm Country Poetry greeting cards, artfully designed by Linda Warren. Available at LindySues.com

SHOW and TELL

We love our design ancestors-like Hatch Show Print, a letterpress shop founded in the 1800s. Today, it’s owned by the Country Music Hall of Fame but still relies on old-school techniques like printing with hand-inked, hand-carved wood blocks. We commissioned our very own Hatch Show Print to celebrate our anniversary and held a party to celebrate. The result was a tuneful recipe for design success.
