Leaf and Straw Books

It has been a few months since I started a collaboration with Rebecca of Moontree Letterpress on a set of three hand-bound books. Now I have some of the fist covers of the books printed and ready to bind. Since I have met her at the stationery show a few years ago, I was always inspired to find a way to collaborate together on some project. But It wasn't until I saw these ex-libris on her blog, that the right idea came to mind. I created the patterns with leaf and straw by only working with black and white on the screen, and it makes me so happy to see now the beautiful texture and colors of letterpress. Rebecca is printing soon the third cover of the books set and a calendar 2012 is also in the process, so more news to come. I'm so grateful to work with her on a collaboration that looked to be fun since the beginning! Thank you Rebecca for finding the words to describe how much we learn and get inspired behind our screens!
