The revival of traditional printing methods has been afoot for the last decade, and the tactile charm of letterpress has ensured that its popularity is on the rise. Ladies of Letterpress is an organization that champions the craft, and in particular seeks to showcase and promote the work of women printers. A gallery of art by its members, the work in Ladies of Letterpress ranges from greetings cards to broadsides and posters, and is offered in a cornucopia of type and illustration styles. What comes through clearly, though, is the quality of the work: every one of these pieces is worthy of display on your wall, and with 80 detachable pages, you can create an instant and beautiful gallery of your own.

Good Design, Down to the Letter Packages on store shelves, posters on building walls, pages of a website—all contain information that needs to be communicated. And at the heart of that communication is type: visually interesting, interactive, expressive and captivating. Each letter must come alive; therefore, each letter must be carefully crafted or chosen. A solid foundation in typography, as well as an understanding of its nuances, will help you optimize your visual communication—in whatever form it takes. By breaking down the study of type into a systematic progression of relationships—letter, word, sentence, paragraph, page and screen—award-winning graphic designer and professor of communication design Denise Bosler provides a unique and illuminating perspective on typography for both print and digital media and for designers of all skill levels. Through instruction, interviews and real-world inspiration, Mastering Type explores the power of each typographic element--both as it stands alone and as it works with other elements--to create successful design, to strengthen your skill set and to inspire your next project.

Maria Cosway, Italian born artist who captured the heart of American Minister to France, Thomas Jefferson in 1786 while he was abroad. Mrs. Cosway was a well known miniaturist painter married to Richard Cosway (also a famous miniaturist). This Modern Lulu First Edition is an artists catalog of both the works of Maria Cosway and her foppish husband Richard. To understand Thomas Jefferson you only have to read his 'Head & Heart' letter he wrote to Mrs. Cosway and the picture (in miniature of course) comes clear.
