For Thank You cards, stationery, invitations, there is no other paper in the world like the silky, pen-perfect handmade sheets from Velke Losiny Mill (Czech)

+Stephen Boss  Here's the set up. "Hidden Treasure" 4 inch goat hair with horn handle. Various other brushes, etc.
The large ink stone is a piece of Welsh slate (from an expedition to the quarries in North Wales when I studied calligraphy with +Ieuan Rees in the early 1980s), originally intended as an ashtray, I think ;-) 
It's not big enough for the 4" brush of course, thus the stainless bowl in the back...

Wrapping up with a 3000 card run for +El Blok Hotel (Puerto Rico)
"Zen of Letterpress" template with client supplied logo. The caption font is my own sans, Quanta Bold & Light. I spend time on each card layout, visually finessing the type, letter spacing, phone numbers, etc.

We get 12- 2"x3.5" cards out of an 8x13" press sheet, or 120 cards from each 26x40 parent sheet.
That's 840 sq inches of finished product out of 1040, less than 20% wasted, which is very little! Many shops end up recycling half of their stock or more!

Pen drawn letters. The ink is coffee colored, café inspired doodles. w/vintage Parker fountain pen. When I saw +Sumner Stone's recent drawing of his lovely new Arepo font, I remembered the Esna sketch I did some time ago. "Pastries" more recently...
