For all you letterpress lovers out there, here’s a little Friday afternoon treat. Clerk Ink Well (based in, yep, you guessed it – Clerkenwell. Clever!) are Huw Griffith and Tessa Nicholson and they have a lovely 19th century Wharfedale letterpress. Huw is arty and Tessa likes words and so together they have come up with a few posters with fun slogans…

They use the finest handmade paper and hand mixed vegetable based inks. Prices start from £45 (unframed) and are available to buy from the Clerk Ink Well website. Bon weekend all et bon nuit (je suis suffering somewhat from post-editorial awards fatigue). Sigh. – Alice

NEW Aardvark print

December 21, 2010

I was flicking through the very beautiful Lost in London the other day (order your copy asap – it’s already sold out in Selfridges!) and stumbled upon this exclusive letterpress print from Aardvark (the manifesto people) inside the front cover – featuring a quote from London, The Biography by Peter Ackroyd. Naturally, I cut it out, scanned it in to show you, then framed it in a flash. Check it out:

Isn’t it cool? Let’s have a look at the Pedlars manifesto, the V&A manifesto and Aarvark‘s other prints, too. Because it’s Christmas. By the way, congratulations to BETH CASTLE who won the fabulous We Make London giveaway prize draw. Happy Christmas, Beth! – Ellie
