Mid Century Modern Furniture in Letterpress

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Nothing screams Mid Century Modernism more than having a look at a George Nelson clock next to a cigar pendant lamp and a Harry Bertoia diamond chair. And nothing is more awesome than seeing them printed on these amazing four color letterpress cards. From the wonderful detail of the shadow reflected beneath the chair to the hint of shadow created behind the clock, designer and printer Leslie Ross-Robertson delivers quality in all of the work featured here.
