Internet, Meet Letterpress

So the new was a long time coming...and it will be a great deal more enticing (visually) and user-friendly in the coming days. The whole separation of life and work thing had been working fairly well until this "fabulous" explosion of reinvigorating Art In The Age with serious nods to good old fashioned craftsmanship.

Anyway, to make a long story short, the new design for is full of little letterpressed secrets. Which will now not be secrets because I will point them out.

- Texture and diagram graphics in the header taken from a printing block procured/rescued by one C. Owens and sent via USPS, the greatest system in existence.

- Icons (hollow/filled arrows and hollow/filled boxes) taken from the motley (read: LOVE-ly) dingbats collection at The Common Press (see image here)

- Background texture for navigation buttons and footer categories taken from a series of embossed proofs of last year's V-Day prints.
