typehigh: hand-printed card
congratulations -- front...
this card is so cool i almost can't stand it. the decorative element that wraps to the back is vintage type, c. 1860, and the cards are printed on a 19th c. platen press. i *want* one. the card and the press.
regarding another card in the store, while not a fan of the phrase "my bad" it's a *brilliant* use of the engravers font (i think, although the serifs are pretty fat!), commonly seen on wedding invites... love that card too. love vintage type. love typehigh! as designers doug and angela say, "correspond with style and wit." more at typehigh.etsy.com
