Colosseo Letterpress Print

colosseo-letterpress-poster-cameron-moll.jpg

An extraordinary poster by the ridiculously talented Cameron Moll, that took a year to make. An image of the Coliseum in Rome, Italy is formed using handcrafted characters from the Goudy Trajan and Bembo Pro typefaces.

Each poster is printed on Somerset Velvet Black or Crane Lettra Pearl and letterpressed by Bj├Şrn Press of Provo, Utah.

I’m simply amazed but the level of detail and the quality of the piece, but what I’m truly impressed by is the dedication and commitment by Cameron to stick with it for an entire year. It was totally worth it.        

Ringling College Admissions Catalog

This is probably the most beautiful college admissions catalogue I’ve ever seen. Absolutely gorgeous. It was designed by Lucas Human, Phil Clark, and Jenn Levreault during their senior year. The three traveled to Bologna, Italy to oversee the press check at Zincographica. You can request a free copy at www.ringling.edu.        

Pantone Espresso Cups

Since I’m a full blooded Italiano, I drink espresso like there was no tomorrow. I love it in the morning, I love it in the afternoon and I love it after dinner. My wedding favor was a nice espresso machine I imported from Italy with a bag of ground espresso. I love it ok!?

So imagine how excited I was when I saw this awesome set of Pantone espresso cups. Then imagine how pissed I was when I found out that they’re only available in the UK. W2 Products doesn’t ship outside the EU and I can’t seem to find anyone in the US that carried them. F-ing great!
